Unions are about greed and not human decency like it was early in the last century. We have the dept of labor and osha which are gov bodies that have effectively replaced the intent of the original unions.
Now what you have are a bunch of people banding together to extort tax payers for nearly 100% tax payer subsidized benefits. Think about this for a minute, everyone in the country is hurting and doing more with less then you have these teachers who already get amazing benefits compared to the rest of us private workers refusing to contribute more to their "good ol days benefits plan" like they're better than everyone else. It really is a pathetic site to see.
Democrats and union leaders said they're willing to agree to the parts of Walker's budget repair bill that would double their health insurance contributions and require them to contribute 5.8 percent of their salary to their pensions.
However, the union leaders want to keep their collective bargaining rights.
