In the old days before public sector unions (i.e., before JFK's executive order enabling public sector unions which even FDR said were unworkable), people went to work for the government knowing their salary would be lower than the private sector, but they knew they would have great job security and benefits. Since the advent of public sector unions, government employees make considerably more that their private sector counterparts, mainly because when the unions negotiate there is no one sitting on the other side of the table. We tax payers do not have a voice in the negotiations - and the politicians collude with the unions to get their votes with our money. It is an incestuous relationship which must be terminated if we are to survive
