Federal and state workers make a LOT more than you and I (on average), and it's because we have bought into the myth that unions are for fair treatment of workers. They may have been at one time, but have become a den of thieves.
My town of York, PA went from a boom town to one of the poorest in America because the exorbitant demands of the union forced Caterpillar out of town. Now they are threatening to shut down Harley (the best paid plant in the area).
But in government? Thevia a union is superfluous because the workers already have powerful lobbies. Can you imagine if military personnel or had a union that demanded more and more all the time?
