Rob Meiksins writes in Nonprofit Quarterly about what happened to Wisconsin after Governor Scott Walker and the Legislature crushed public sector unions.

I previously posted the underlying study here about how teachers’ salaries and benefits declined.

Meiksins adds:

“An article by Mother Jones covering the same study cites a conversation with a professor at the University of Wisconsin teaching certification program, ranked by US News and World Report as one of the best in the country. This professor said that prior to Act 10, they would receive 300-400 applicants for their 125 openings, annually. Now they get one applicant per opening.”
