The public sector unions own the Democrat party and will continue to bankrupt local, state and federal governments. Public sector unions are the patronage armies of both parties, with the democrats taking the lion's share. Employees of local, state and federal governments should not be allowed to unionize for the same reasons that members of the Armed Forces are not allowed to unionize. Politicians have sold out the taxpayers, giving public sector union employees overly generous wages, benefits and pensions in exchange for the votes and campaign contributions of these public sector unions. This will continue until government entities prohibit unionization of employees.
