Just a quick hit for a Sunday morning…in an article in this morning’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Rick Romell reviews the reasons that BuySeasons didn’t bring it’s 450 permanent (300 of them full time) jobs to Milwaukee from Waukesha County.

One of the main roadblocks was Alderman Bob Donovan who thought the jobs just didn’t, well, pay enough. Despite the fact that the average hourly rate for BuySeasons employees as $11.55 at the time. That comes out to $24,024 per year…which just happens to be the per capita income for Milwaukee County…and wait for it…the proposed annual salary for Milwaukee County supervisors via Assembly Bill 85.
