Should California state government workers go on strike permanently?
http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-union2-2009aug02,0,2450021.story SEIU Local 1000, which represents 95,000 California tax-eating parasites (state government employees) has decided to threaten to strike. Who else thinks that Governor Schwarzenegger should just fire all 95,000 of them and give the people of California the tax cut that they have long deserved? As we all know, government bureaucrats do not provide any valuable services (their "services" consist of things like extorting money out of people and handing out welfare checks). If Schwarzenegger ever learned anything from Milton Friedman's Free to Choose (he appeared in the television version), he would know that the people of California would be better off if all of the "workers" (who don't actually perform any real work) of SEIU 1000 were fired. Will California's governor stand up for the people of California or for the parasitical state government employees?

That's an oxymoron. You can't strike permanently. To leave permanently is called quitting your job.

I believe unions must exist but the ones involving state workers,teachers,firemen, in calif are way out of line.I know many of the employees that hv been threatened because they were to efficient.and the fact that once in you can't be fired. It also goes for the fed.

You bonehead! I work for the State government and you don't know what you're talking about. You can't be serious? I too am a student of Milton Friedman! He saw a role for government. Don't misquote him! So, you don't want the cops patrolling the streets? You don't want teachers in the classroom? you don't want the... More
