    commuting distance to the Madison area in Dane, County. The economy in Dane County, both public sector and private sectors have been hit hard by the cuts to the public employee workers (in the form of contributions to benefits and retirement, but they still get about 12% less take home pay, before taxes). So, his district includes Columbia and Sauk counties, close to Dane county on the south. I believe that Waupon, is also in Olsen's district. There is a state prison there. The prison guards are state employees, who are pretty angry, from everything I have heard from them. They are really on the front lines in the prisons and feel unappreciated and do need unions.
