Why can't the public sector workers in Wisconsin learn to do more with less?

Being stripped of their rights to bargain for pensions and benefits......... isn't going to ruin them. They still have decent wages. and in all likelihood, they are still going to maintain their vacation policies. It doesn't sound to me like their lives are being significantly deteriorated as a result of this new policy. Sounds to me like they're making a big to-do over minor occurrences. A strong majority of private sector employees seem to function without a union. and they're controlled by employers who will do anything to make a profit. If they can function without a union, why can't public sector workers?

Yeah, for now they do. Guess who's the next target once their standard of life is destroyed? Bye bye middle class hello pre-union slave labor days. Who would've guessed we'd return to you after all these decades.

It's hard to learn to do more with less when you're so used to doing less with more.

They are union. They make a big deal over everything. They would climb on a bus in a New York minute to ride to anywhere else to support their "brothers" over something as small as length of coffee breaks.

So, what you want is for College Educated Professionals who happen to work for the Government to get paid like a Burger King / Walmart Employes? Gotcha..

Because what they make whether in public or private industries is not enough to make a decent living. Now more than ever the only way families can survive is by having both parents working, and i doesn't helps that day care is so ridiculously expensive. The fact is that in the US, the gap between rich and poor is... More
