    Tax payers are customers and if they don't like the product the government gives them for their money, they vote to change the government to one that will give them the product they wish to purchase.

    It's not a hard concept to understand. I think you're just over-complicating things.

    Well, if you think it's a good idea for labor unions to associate themselves with killing working class jobs, then keep on keepin' on.

    Taxpayer are the customers of the government not of the union

    The unions customers are its members. You do not deal with the union, you deal with the government and its employees

    Since they're still getting our money, is that really much of an effective boycott? I wish everone would boycott my business by sending me money but not actually partaking in any of the services I offer.

    And as I told you before......the typical negotiating table has the never satisfied Union Slobs on one side.....Democrat Politicians promising them the world on the other.

    ........but change is in the air....in Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan ect ect...and it cant come soon enough.

    In my district you'll start out at about 48k. But just give it a bit and you'll be up to 90k in no time. After that you've got 150k to look forward to, which will be nice because then you get a very nice percentage of the last three years salary as your yearly pension.
