    I wonder if CNN also showed videos of people whose jobs were saved because the unions were no longer able to gouge local governments, or the people who were able to buy food or clothing for their kids with the money they saved not being forced to pay union dues?

    The public employee unions got very greedy getting benefits for their members that exceeded those of private workers who pay the taxes, and this is the result.

    This is Democracy versus the backroom deals between union bosses and Democratic politicians.

    This.
    What public unions seem to forget is that we the people pay their salaries and as we have had to tighten our budgets WE demand that they tighten theirs. You want great benefits? So do we, but not any more. Sorry.
