Most folks don’t realize it, but if all the public employee unions went a way tomorrow, public employers would still have to provide packages that attract workers.

The only people who need unions are democrat politicians and union management.

The purpose of public employee unions is to money launder taxpayer funds through union member dues to DemoRat campaign coffers and finally, Rat politicians pockets.

[. . . public employers would still have to provide packages that attract workers.]

Without unions employers can provide these benefits at a lower cost, operate more efficiently minus shop rules, and more easily terminate unproductive employees. State and federal laws give public employees benefits and protections rarely found in the private sector.

The "public employers" are the taxpayers who have allowed their employees to bargain with each other for the taxpayers money without any taxpayer input into the matter. That has to end.

With regards to schools, this does keep boards from overpaying school management or preventing the empire-building typical of a central office. Our local school district in Texas whose student enrollment is 3000 pays its superintendent $160,000 a year. It would be higher, but her husband is also an employee of the district.
