Gov. Scott Walker effectively ended collective bargaining for public workers in 2011...  Most employers choose to "red-circle" employees Carlson says are overpaid so they don't get pay cuts, but they won't get raises until the system catches up.

Carlson has been closely watched by the state chapters of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, the worker union that has lost nearly half of its members since dues became optional under Act 10.
