Rewarding Failure: The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation

Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation's CEO, Reed Hall, Gets 50% Raise

An agency embroiled in controversy (where is money being spent, how is it being spent, and what are the results of that spending?) seems unjustified in giving the CEO a 50% raise.

But that's how Scott Walker rolls. Ignore the questions swirling about efficiency, legality, underhandedness, and cronyism at WEDC. Just give the CEO a raise and pretend everything is going as planned. A perfect example of how the (quasi) private sector operates: regardless of results, those at the top are rewarded.

Sounds a lot like Scott Walker's political career. Even though he'e been a train-wreck in every office he has held, he keeps getting rewarded with higher offices.
