War, I’d like to point out one thing you said as it applies to the current situation.
“Second Unions negotiate their pay based on company performance. They don’t take pay raises when the companies are in the tank. ”
That’s true, except for the public-sector unions. How many years has our economy been contracting? 3? 4? In that time, WI public-sector unions have still garnered raises in wages. So have many other government unions.
I suspect that the seperation exist because the unions in the private sector recognize the hazard of doing that will bankrupt the company, and the public-sector unions don’t care because the the government can always soak the taxpayers for more cash. Thanks for proving my point that public-sector unions are out of touch with the economy and need to be reigned in.
