Excerpt from Garnishee of Wages

The degree of protection enjoyed by wage earners against unfair garnishment of course depends Upon the amount of ex emption as well as upon procedure, and within each of the three groups as here arranged, the states differ widely in the amount which may be protected against execution. But owing to the varying terms in which exemptions are stated, it is dificult'to arrange the list of states in the order of the generosity of ex emption allowed to debtors. (a careful summary of wage ex emption laws, prepared by Margaret A. Schaffner, has been published by the Wisconsin Free Library Commission).

It is commonly assumed that the Wisconsin exemption is liberal. At first glance it so appears. But it is not in fact liberal as compared with many states. It allows no more than $60 a month nor more than $180 in three months and this exemp tion is rendered still less liberal by virtue of an arrangement, not common in other states, which requires a debtor to include the wages of his minor children in the exemption which he may claim. Any earnings of the debtor and his children combined which ex eeea $60 per month or $180 in three months are subject to gar nishment. In the typical wage earner's family, therefore, the exemption is easily covered.
