The union protesters in the Wisconsin State Capitol building who do not leave by a 5:00 pm deadline could be arrested. Despite their cause which has drawn little support from the public, the people allegedly supporting the unions could lose the little sympathy they might have acquired. I say allegedly since there has been no definition of who the protesters are really and if they are from Wisconsin or have been bussed in by the Unions at the ultimate expense of the union rank and file.
What the Unions do not want aired is the facts that:
1. union public employees earn more than private employees who through taxes pay for union excesses.
2. union employees generally cannot be fired for incompetence, because of collective bargaining.
3. union employees have health insurance and pension for life
All of the above at the expense of the tax payer and for the most part used by the union leaders, allowing them to lead expensive life styles only compared to communists who live, differently from their people, on the Black Sea. Right to work would eliminate this class difference once and forever, if workers would just understand that the Unions work for themselves only.
The bottom line is if the misguided employees, if in truth they represent Wisconsin should be arrested if they break the law. Let the union attorneys bill for their services. No worker teacher, plumber or electrician should allow the union bosses to dictate to them. Sort of smacks of all three Godfather movies, doesn’t it?
