Public Sector Unions Have No Right to Collective Bargaining
Public sector union’s collective bargaining is not the same as private sector union’s collective bargaining. When the United Auto Workers bargain with say Ford they are dealing directly with the people who will pay them. However, when the teacher’s union in Wisconsin negotiates it is not with the people who pay their salaries, the taxpayers. Instead they bargain with people who are beholden to the unions for funding, campaign workers, and votes. The taxpayers have no place in the bargaining process, so is it any wonder that the ordinary citizen is being royally screwed by these unions? Here is a charge that the Wisconsin governor has created an artificial crisis in a move to bust the union. If this article is true, which I doubt, then I say well done Governor Walker. Public sector unions, whose members earn their money at the point of a gun, have no right to bargain with people, government officials, who are not the ones responsible for making good on the deal, the taxpayers. Public sector unions are immoral and they should be abolished.
