Maggie Thatcher was right about socialism and other peoples’ money.

This is where the global economic collapse starts.

Local [union] government employees’ pensions bankrupting cities, which demand to be bailed out, and it goes up the chain.

Public employee Unions by nature, are against the principles of a Representative democracy.

My public employee union (federal) does not have collective bargaining for wages and benefits, and that is how it should be.

We work for the taxpayer. If the taxpayer decides to tighten things up via their representatives in Congress, so be it.

My coworkers don’t quite see it that way, though. They constantly bombard me with articles about planned changes to our pay and retirement, trying to get me riled up. Doesn’t work.

The entire reason the transit system in Pittsburgh does not work is that more than half of the budget goes to paying pensions for their workers to retire and sit home starting in their early 50’s.

Public-Employee Unions Gone Wild (Their excessive demands are squeezing local governments)

No, it's squeezing, choking off and gang raping the local private sector tax payers.

We now are working for thousands of these local fiefdoms and local overlords.

Years ago, they were considered "Public Servants", now the private sector works for them, to pay their tax paid opulent wages, benefits, lottery style retirement pensions, extravagant buildings, offices etc.

We were clearly warned about this by the founders of America.
