Gov. Walker and Republicans in Madison are wasting no time in their plot todismantle Wisconsin’s landmark civil service law. Our current civil service system is designed to ensure fairness and integrity in the hiring and firing of all state employees. The proposals being debated in Madison would break our system,inserting politics and paving the way for political favoritism, givebacks and corruption.
