Haven't been a fan of unions, since having first hand experience with their corruption, but I am curious, because any other time, they are all over our news here, and there isn't a peep from them on this.
The unions, which bargain for the city’s 28,500 current and retired workers, including the largest, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), made it clear they would do nothing to oppose this attack. AFSCME and the other unions have long collaborated with the Democratic-run city administration in slashing the wages and benefits of municipal workers.
This is Michigan's nightmare from the Fascist Rick Snyder our governor. He places private companies to usurp the elected officials and this private companies (managers) get full access to the tax coffers without oversight or the public's permission.
Rick Snyder killed democracy in Mi. You better hope this does not spread, we cannot get rid of him or do anything about it. Its a horrible situation for everyone here.
