Republican legislators in Kansas were moving ahead Wednesday with bills to shrink the state’s civil service and restrict public employee unions, saying the measures would modernize government and make it operate more like private industry.
Public employee groups saw the bills being considered by the House and Senate commerce committees as part of a coordinated attack on organized labor, a key source of political support for Democrats. They also argued that the changes will harm workers.
And the Union goes up in arms.
Ain’t that too bad. I’m not ant-union (yes I am) and it’s okay to be union if you want too. But I am against the employer being responsible for acting as cashier/secretary/recruiter and all other overhead to unions.
I think unions should collect their own dues, pay taxes on their income, be responsible for their own building and offices and be taxed for them. They shouldn’t get a free ride on the tax payers backs and be allowed to give retirement funds to politicians election campaigns, vacations or any other type of hand out to other than the union members and families.
I’ve seen too many of the union crap on strike where the members act as un-disciplined pimply faced teens – pissing in corners, spitting on people and, shades of NYC defecating on police cars.
For fun, Dear – y, just for fun. Cos, I don’t even know who the first president is and don’t care, you know. This is my life, now.
