Union Cold To Pawlenty Wage Freeze Proposal

Eliot Seide is the Director of AFSCME Council 5 which represents 40,000 State Governent and non-profit employees.  He says the state has contracts which are in place through June 30, 2009 and they will start bargaining the next contract in March.  Seide points out that the Governor wants to reduce mandates on local governments, but wants to add the mandate that if you take money from the state you have to give your employees a zero percent wage increase.
