Unions just don’t get it, do they? Their day of organized theft of the taxpayer’s money is over

Connecticut Unions Have Trouble Reading Hand Writing on Wall- Warner Todd Huston  Monday, June 27, 2011

Cities, counties and states (not to mention the federal gov’t) all across the country are overspent, out of cash, and deeply in the red. One reality that has been hitting all these government entities has been a series of tough negotiations with government employee unions. Unions are loathe to take cuts, certainly, but the reality is that in many cases it’s either cuts or layoffs. More and more unions are realizing this and taking the cuts to avoid losing jobs. The foolish government employees in Connecticut seem to be insensible to reality, though.

Strangely enough, even the government union bosses in Connecticut understood the pickle they were in. Union bigwigs negotiated cuts with the Democrat controlled state legislature and Democrat Governor Daniel Malloy. They did this with the understanding that none of their rank and file would lose their job.
Unfortunately for the unions, many of the members seem too foolish to “get” it. They voted the concessions down. Now Governor Malloy is saying he has little choice but to get rid of thousands of workers.
Nice move, fellows.
Hey, some good news! What do YOU think? Should the Government- local, state, national- fund unions? Should gov. pass laws to protect and preserve unions? OR should unions have to rely on those who FREELY CHOOSE to support and/or join them?
