    Wisconsin is listed as a "right-to-work" state, but is not listed in turquoise color.

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!

    That is fully understandable. Everybody needs an income to survive, HOPEFULLY to avoid hunger and homelessness.

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!

    All the statistics I have seen show union workers on average make 5 - 10% more than non union workers in the same job.....but someone has to be in the bottom half of those stats, and unfortunately it is you.

    You could become active in the union and see why they are not doing better on wages and benefits.

    Wisconsin recently became a right to work state. The map hasn't been updated.
