But, public employee unions get most, if not all of their money from taxes. It should be illegal for them to use tax money to attack private business.I disagree, the union is a private organization, not a public one.
I'm sorry but between President Obama's handling of the bond holders in General Motors and invalidating mortgage contracts, not unlike a king, contracts are becomming a moot point.
Where I worked there was a union without collective bargaining rights. The union still got to shake down the taxpayers, though.

It's tax payer money, no matter how you spin it.Once state employees receive a paycheck, that money goes from being public state funds, to private personal funds. Union dues, even though they are transferred through the state's payroll software, is still private once the bank transaction processes and is simply a matter of the state being a proxy in moving what are fully private funds. However, the funds are fully private because they are ultimately derived from paychecks.
Taxes, right? The more money that public employees get paid, the more union dues they will pay. So, is it really right for unions, who depend on tax dollars to keep their coffers full, to turn around and use that money to shakedown private businesses? Just because it's leagal doesn't make it right. As I said before, I think the public employee unions have picked a losing battle.
