I got no dog in this hunt... but I can't say i'm not happy that the public unions are being brought to heel in Wisconsin... it's better for their state's book to do so.
as for this being about being anti-worker.. that's nonsense.... government , across the land, treats it employees according to the law... and they will continue to do so even in the absence of public sector unions.
police, teachers, firefighters, etc will not magically turn into slave labor if they are not unionized, despite the rhetoric from the pro-union camps.
Finally, the people have recognized that the problem of unsustainable public benefits must be dealt with at it's core. Congratulations Wisconsin.... America, pay attention.
I believe FDR said it best:
"All Government employees should realize that the process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service. It has its distinct and insurmountable limitations when applied to public personnel management. The very nature and purposes of Government make it impossible for administrative officials to represent fully or to bind the employer in mutual discussions with Government employee organizations. The employer is the whole people, who speak by means of laws enacted by their representatives in Congress. Accordingly, administrative officials and employees alike are governed and guided, and in many instances restricted, by laws which establish policies, procedures, or rules in personnel matters.
Particularly, I want to emphasize my conviction that militant tactics have no place in the functions of any organization of Government employees. Upon employees in the Federal service rests the obligation to serve the whole people, whose interests and welfare require orderliness and continuity in the conduct of Government activities. This obligation is paramount. Since their own services have to do with the functioning of the Government, a strike of public employees manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to prevent or obstruct the operations of Government until their demands are satisfied. Such action, looking toward the paralysis of Government by those who have sworn to support it, is unthinkable and intolerable. It is, therefore, with a feeling of gratification that I have noted in the constitution of the National Federation of Federal Employees the provision that "under no circumstances shall this Federation engage in or support strikes against the United States Government."
