Wisconsin Firefighters Union President Mahlon Mitchell

President of the Wisconsin Firefighters Union Mahlon Mitchell says his union is flattered, but willing to give up pay increases so other public employees don’t have to take as much of a pay cut, and so Wisconsin does not outlaw collective bargaining for public employees.
