Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
Nor should we forget that the state isn't required to bargain with the unions. Nothing wrong with firing workers who refuse to work (Mayor Snorkum believes this is a called a "strike", though the baseball reference is elusive) and replacing them with people willing to function on the job. Since we are discussing government employees, it's not like a high level of functioning is required, anyway.
The First Amendment does not allow collective bargaining as the term is used. The term is a typical misdirection beloved of lefties that seems to paint one picture of love and friendship while hiding the real picture of extortion, compulsion, and loss of choice for both employee and employer.
Why do you support losing freedom of choice?
NO. Certification is an assurance ot the employer that the employee has sufficient proficiency to perform his assigned task.
There's no better reason for an employer to reject a union than for the union to demand it take control of the certification requirements.
Conservatives believe the government is incompetent, and seek to elect people who will prove it
Ignorance is Bliss Bliss is the same as happiness US Christian conservatives are the happiest in the US according to studies Do you see a connection?
Every election day at the ballot, and every day, with their feet.
Under no circumstance should public employees ever be paid more than their private industry counterparts. If they believe they're so much better, then they can haul their butts out of the protected stagnant swamp of government land and compete for jobs with everyone else in the market where talent and ability is rewarded. But enough of this crap about how indispensible to poor government worker is. 95% of them are clerks, nothing more.
No, nothing socialist in what I post.
Certainly nothing envious shown about people who resort to mob violence when told they're harming their state and the state needs to remove their illegal power to corrupt politicians becuase they're bankrupting the state by their excesses.
