“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”

There should be NO state unions. Period. BUT.... if there is then the tax payers should vote on whether to provide raises.

Some users say that it's unconservative to ban public sector unions, but in a private market without regulations then there wouldn't be any public sector. If we are going to have a public sector, then there will be regulations.
I say we ban public sector unions. It's not fair that poor people pay for health care and pension for rich public sector workers. How are we going to solve the budget crisis, if federal workers get compensated 124K per year. And how are we going to reduce their wage without tackling the unions.
I don't really have a strong opinion either way... but I don't like seeing the government stepping in and trying to do anything here... Ideally, if there were very little government I think unions would be necessary though. It's only natural for individuals, including workers to fight for their own best interests. If there are little regulations, there should be, at least unions. Some people think that unions hurt a company, but it's also true the management hurts their own companies where there is financial gain (Enron for example). Now we have Sarbanes Oxley, so if there are no regulations I think unions should be permitted to balance the power out...
I believe that in the free market, at least one agent would want to secure the longevity of the company over short term profit... sometimes it's the worker, sometimes it's mgt. Seeing a company prosper and have long life, is economically rational and ideal for the workers..
As Public Sector Unions in Wisconsin and various other states have shown......it seems you cant have one without the other......What you should be arguing against is the privilege of collective bargaining, not the right to form associations.
I think I'll form my reply in the words of FDR,

Now that doesn't mean he did not favor government employee unions at all, but that they must be restricted.
I'd go a step further and say I'd want a complete ban on unionization in government employment.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
