Do you really think you're on the winning side?

There is no hatred being espoused here.
Some level of public employement is necessary to insure proper government function.

I think the better questions are:
1. Why do you hate your job and your customers so much that you are willing to shut down govt over this relatively minor issue?
2. How does your pay/benefit package stack up with similiar jobs in other states or private sector?
3. If you are unhappy, why don't you quit and get a better job?
4. Are you a slave to your current situation?
5. Are the services provided by WI public employees better than the services provided by same functions in other states and/or private sector? If so, perhaps above average compensation is warranted, go ahead and make your case. If not, you probably should be quiet and be happy with what you have.
5. If you perform at a higher level than coworkers; wouldn't you want opportunity to earn more?
6. Is a Union socialistic and mediocre approach, where everybody is treated the same regardless of performance good for society?

No hatred here.
Just trying to get some people to wake up and join the real world.

No hatred? Then why the attack against workers by the wealthy? And why are you supporting it?

Maybe you are unaware of it but people are struggling. It is a time that unity is needed, not a knife in the back by the GOP.

I love my job. I'm proud that union workers in Wisconsin stood up to Walker's attack on the middle class. My co-workers and I work hard for our pay. When I worked in the corporate sector, I saw plenty of managerial abuse against employees. Wake up.

So you live your life based on who is in political power? Just so you are educated, there is an election taking place before they are back in session and 10 dems are up for relection.

You are just being a typical liberal - can't admit defeat.

Are you struggling huh?
I very much doubt it.

On the contrary, even though you have to pay a teeny, tiny bit more for health insurance and retirement you still have a financially better life that probably 90 % of Americans.
Further, if you quit your job today, 100's would apply for your exact position.

Time for you people to go away. Your solutions are much worse than the sickness.

Just so you wacky liberals are educated, over 150 school districts are actually going to have increased funding.

I know, it goes against all of your "world is ending" crap.

The Neenah School District announced last Tuesday that it has adopted a health care plan that will save taxpayers $1.8 million each year. These savings will help the district raise its base pay for teachers

That took place in May.

Now us tax payers were saved hundreds of millions of dollars.
