Concerns at the Capitol, about overtime for state employees. Menomonee Falls Republican Sue Jeskewitz says there's too much of it, with some state employees putting in 90 hours a week. "How do you do your job, when you are working that many hours a week? Isn't that a safety issue? Isn't that a productivity issue?" Jeskewitz co-chairs the Legislature's Audit Committee, which received a report showing the state has paid nearly $190 million in overtime to workers since 2005. "It almost looks to me like kind of a game," says Jeskewitz, who says those overtime hours need to be curtailed.
