    Public sector unions will be around a while because they are organs of the dem party and its hard to outsource stuff like AFSCME bureaucrats. HOwever, manufacturing unions and some service unions are doomed by global markets. the most legitimate and useful unions-trade unions that teach a trade-are waning while the least legitimate and most malignant unions-public sector unions are growing. No wonder we are screwed

    Public Unions will always exist, but this is the beginning and continuation of curtailing their excessive power. They had their time when they were needed, now they are too bloated and must be cut back.

    Even the Roman Catholic church doesn't make kids join the faith to attend parochial schools. This has to be the moronic post of the month.

    That was a mistype it was supposed to be private sector workers...and if you think public unions are dead...hang on to your scrotum and watch what happens in the next election cycle...there will be a working class revolt against the teatards....when reagan was prez the conservatives thou ght it was the end of the world for democrats and the working class...when obama got elected the progressives thought it was the end of the conservatives...the keyword in all that is THOUGHT...just like the teatards THINK the unions are dead....

    Unions are a good way for employees to discuss issues with employers. I still think it's important to have employee organization to voice these concerns (A Union or smaller group).

    The better question is why are public sector unions needed in the first place?

    Such things always go back and forth. As I've told you before with elections, be careful most when you win.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
