Anyone with the least bit of an open mind wil see that both links clearly indicate that 44% of local/state budgets go to PS unions. You are free to provide any data that you have to disprove this. I'll wait.

Further unions have no place in government employ. Period. Why because of a conflict of interest that goes on everyday in this country. Unions sell their vote for higher compensation and that is a fact that is wide spread across this country. And that fact is being more and more dealt with as states and counties and cities realize the agreements that were brokered in the past by liberal legislators to buy the union vote are unsustainable. You can try and eye wash this fact all you want but no one is listening anymore.
I have no problem with unions in the private sector as they are forced to compete with the non-union work force. But there is no competition under government employ.

The very gist of the your first article (your first article, your own source of information!!!) was that the total spending on public employee wages and salaries is more accurately assessed at 17.7%, as opposed to the 8.5% assessment of Pocan.
Do you think if you keep repeating the same misread erroneous crap, over and over and over again, that it will somehow become true? It won't. Now, be a man and recant.

Edit: BTW, here is a link on the MPS refusing to reopen their contract to provide contributions, instead taking layoffs. It's obviously a biased link, but the main thing I wanted to show was that they did refuse despite the claims of union leadership tat they would.
