Tim Pawlenty: Government Unions vs. Taxpayers – WSJ.com.

Pretty good opinion piece by Governor Pawlenty here about unions and how we need to go about fixing them.

Here is the best paragraph in the whole piece:

The moral case for unions—protecting working families from exploitation—does not apply to public employment. Government employees today are among the most protected, well-paid employees in the country. Ironically, public-sector unions have become the exploiters, and working families once again need someone to stand up for them.

    He makes an excellant point. But I suppose the government employees don’t see it that way.

      Yeah, but they are whining maggots, so I don’t care.
