Public-employee unions: Hanging us on a meathook!

Public Unions Get Too 'Friendly' - They resemble 'On the Waterfront' more than 'Norma Rae.'


When union leaders negotiate with a politician, they're negotiating with someone they can hire and fire. Public unions have numbers and money, and politicians need both. And politicians fear strikes because the public hates them. When governors negotiate with unions, it's not collective bargaining, it's more like collusion. Someone said last week the taxpayers aren't at the table. The taxpayers aren't even in the room.

Comment: Peggy Noonan's take. A very good read. Image: Spanish poster for On the Waterfront. Being "on a meathook" is not a good thing! US poster below:
