Higher taxes to support pensions for government workers while pensions have all but disappeared for the vast majority of private sector workers.
Don't blame unionized employees for the fact that private sector pensions have "disappeared." Blame private sector employers for this travesty. Anything else is pure class warfare, envy and jealosy and you know it!
PUBLIC unions are the travesty and should not even exist.
Because.... public workers never have workplace complaints, bad management, contract issues, or feel a need to negotiate as a group. Right. Workers are workers. I work for the state of California for 5+ years now and it's not the paradise folks in private employ seem to be imagining of late. Grass is not greener here. Anti-union bigots will not be happy until all vestiges of union are destroyed and we can go back to 60-hour work weeks with no vacation or sick leave.
