Are public-sector workers overcompensated relative to their private-sector analogues? All signs point to yes. Are states and localities massively overextended due to salaries and benefits accorded public-sector workers? Again, all signs point to yes. Does that mean that states will start reeling in the amount of money they’re paying out now, not to mention the future? Not so much. Consider even Wisconsin, where’s Scott Walker’s two-year budget increases total spending by 3 percent.
