Unions were needed back in the days of sweat shops, killing mills and mines of years ago. But now they are lazy, greedy and corrupt beyond redemption and living in the past. We need to progress into the future with compensation based on merit and factoring the required productivity to live decent. Large overreaching government and organized labor are the problem. We need more freedom and independent thinking or at least a level playing field between free independent workers and unions!

Public service unions support democrats. Democrats in turn support unions and their benefits. Pay to play. Time this stops. We used to think of government workers as underpaid public servants. Now they are better paid than the people who pay their salaries. Who serves whom here? People understand that they have to lay off their workers or they don't have the money for their family. What they don't like is when there is a certain group that doesn't like to make the sacrifices.

Why should the AstroTurf unionized 11.9% of the workforce have such an overbearing effect on the other 88.1% free and independent workers! The majority of taxpaying voters have spoken. Governors Christie and Walker get it as this is what the silent TEA majority is screaming for. We need to progress into the future with compensation based on merit. The taxpayers and student do not need to be trampled upon for a few that feel entitled to excessive compensation and protection exacted by Big Labor!

Here are some enlightening poll numbers. Thirty-eight percent (38%) of voters think teachers, firemen and policemen should be allowed to go on strike, but 49% disagree and believe they should not have that right. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure. Thirty-seven percent (37%) say, in terms of its impact on the nation, it’s a good thing that most teachers belong to public employee unions. Forty-six percent (46%) disagree and say it’s a bad thing that most teachers are unionized. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure. Sixty-one percent (61%) of all voters believe that members of public employee unions should contribute the same percentage to their health care and pension plans as those in the private sector pay. Only 16% disagree, but another 23% are not sure. (from
