This is unbelievably disgusting. I'll be passing this article on to others. I get so angry when I hear about the extraordinary pay, benefits,
pensions and hours union/state workers get while those of us in the private sector struggle to survive.
Many of them never went to college or never received some form of higher education, yet they get paid more and are protected better than those who did
receive higher education. Financially-speaking, is it even worth going to school?! It seems as though the best thing to do is to quit after high
school, get a union job and live happily ever after. You don't have to work so hard, things don't need to be done right away, they don't
need to be done to perfection, just as long as something gets done at some point in time. You still get paid and you don't really have to worry about
losing your job!
This news is just another stab in the back. This place is starting look more and more like the Communism my family escaped in the 80s. Workers
unite, kill or chase all the evil businesses/business men out, let Government take them over and declare no right to private property, because
everything belongs to everybody (meaning the Government).
Some may think I'm overreacting (and maybe I am. I don't know.), but when the Unions get preferential treatment over everyone else, more people are
going to want to join them in order to have a better life, giving the Unions even more power. Unions have destroyed or at least hindered many
businesses by demanding things the businesses could not deliver. Like parasites they suck the blood right out of the private sector until there's
hardly anything left. It's tragic. Businesses begin to leave the country and go someplace else where they can still make a profit doing what they do.
Why would ANYONE want to deal with the stress of building a business when things like Unions are going to make it hell, and the Government begins to
tax the crap out of them? It's not worth the gray hair.
Keep putting stress on the private sector and see what this country will become. It will be in poverty and ruins, because all the truly industrious
people will go elsewhere, and all the parasites will remain here. When there's nothing left here to take, they can bicker amongst themselves.
