Government unions should be outlawed period. If a steelmill has a union the company, regardless, still has to work within a budget or close the doors. Police, firemen, teachers, and whatever the fed union is seem to just say what they want and no problem, just raise taxes. If it keeps going the only reasonable carrier choice for anybody under 30 is anything in government. We are already now a socialist country like it or not, it's just scares me we are still sliding down this hill.
Unfortunately some of the other unions dont shut their doors they get taxpayer paid bailouts!Buddy of mine is retired out of a south Florida SO.He is walking away with 85K a year retirement.His best 5 years averaged over a 122K which they based his retirement on.Problem being they are having a hard time finding ways to pay for retiring city employees and the ones hiring on now.They need a FAIR wage and retirement but it has to be sustainable without hurting the taxpayer.My beef is when the unions resort to violence or show up late to a fire to get their way.Extortion is a crime no matter how you color it.
