Aw c'mon get off your high horse. The facts are that most Americans of middle age had their parents in a Union of some kind or another. Why all the demogaguery?....If it wasn't for the Unions, there would not have been as many families owning their own homes. Unions gave workers discretionary income. Just because it has been politicized and corrupted doesn't mean that the Unions have not done their jobs, but rather that the system is broken. The money public service employees make is given to them by the politicians that were elected by the very same people ranting about the Unions. Get a grip. Be honest and fair. If you don't like it, target the politiicians that cut the deals, not the employees.
