Its nice to see that public unions have been thrown into the spot light with actions in WI and OH. What do you think of collective bargaining for public employees?
I'll start it of by saying I support the right to unionize, but only in the private sector. I think public unions went too far and are unnecessary. If you don't like the work conditions, pay, etc in the public sector, go to the private sector. Peggy Noonan wrote a good piece on public unions over at the WSJ:
I think the lawmakers in WI that are hiding out in IL should be fired on the spot or something. Refusing to show up is an abdication of responsibility and a direct attack on democracy. I hope this doesn't spawn other walk outs when votes get tough and the minority wants to high jack the majority position that was fairly elected. This is the same left that wants to take away filibusters, but yet is most likely egging on the "brave" souls that walked out of WI. Ridiculous!
