Who do state government workers think they are protesting?

In the US, the state works for the people, not the other way around. When a private-sector union protests and strikes it is against a business or industry (and their stock holders) to pressure them into giving better pay and/or benefits in an open and competitive market. When state union workers protest, don't they realize they are protesting the people of the state? It is the people, not the politicians, who pay their salary. We the people are the board of directors of our country. Then there's the partisanship associated with unions. Why should any money from state unions be allowed in politics? They are basically using money paid to employees by the state citizens (both republicans and democrats) to payoff a single party for special treatment. Why is having a state union direct money to a campaign in repayment of favors any different than a politician forcing state employees to donate to their campaign directly in order to retain their jobs which is illegal?
