Unions plan strike

  1. Millions out of work and hungry for jobs! Time to strike!
  2. I think the most common thought: a strike by public employee's make them look like ungratfull thugs to the general taxpayer.

    What if we view a strike by public employee's as a message to politicians to get their fiscal house in order.

    Seriously, there is not many tools in our tool box to deal with politicians except to vote them out. Lobbyists have the clout of money to persuade elected officials.

    Perhaps we should stand behind the unions, force public officials to to come up with better solutions.

    For example. No raise for unions workers. Private sector managment would look for increased productivity for wage increases not so with public beaucracy's.
