This is the third and final installment examining various aspects of Issue 2, the bill to overhaul collective bargaining and make other changes in employee contributions to benefit plans.
The measure requires all public workers to pay at least 15 percent towards their health care and 10 percent toward their pension.
How many workers already do that? Would the change mean significant savings to governments and taxpayers?
How does public employee compensation compare with counterparts in the private sector?
Tom Beres discusses these issues with the Plain Dealer's Joe Frolik, former Congressman Dennis Eckart, labor law attorney Keith Ashmus and Amy Hanuaer, the director of Policy Matters, a research group that supports working people.
