The American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees Local 1028, which represents 1,300 employees of the Will County, IL, government, has taken its members out on strike.
The county offered to pay 90% of their health insurance costs along with a 14.5% pay increase. This isn’t enough, though. Anders Lindall, spokesman for AFSCME, objected: the pay raise is too little, and the 10% the union employees must pay for their health insurance is “double their current premiums.”
It’s “not fair.”
Cry me a river.
