Will workers walk out in Will County?

The county says its offer would get most employees a 14.5 percent pay increase over four years.

AFSCME wants a better deal, arguing that workers didn't get cost-of-living increases under their current contract. (It did include step increases.) AFSCME also says the county is asking employees to pay significantly more toward their health care costs, in some cases doubling what they contribute now.

But that would still be a phenomenal deal compared to what many families pay in the private and public sectors. The average AFSCME worker in Will County pays just $91 a month for premium family coverage. Workers pay on a sliding scale according to how much they earn in base pay and which plan they choose. Employee contributions cover just 5 percent of the total premium cost, according to the county. Taxpayers pick up the rest.

According to a study commissioned by the county, Kane County employees pay $351 a month for comparable coverage, Lake County workers pay $244 and DuPage County workers pay $681.

For those that don't know what that is, essentially you squat with your back to a wall then hold something trivially light chest level at arms length and cant lower your arms. Sounds easy until you're 10 minutes in and your arms are on fire.
