Hey Wisconsin Teachers - I Am a Government Employee - I Cannot Unionize - I Cannot Strike...

...I Live With It And Can Honestly Say - What do you mean you do not see fit to pay what is certainly an acceptable and ethical percentage of your health insurance and retirement and are unwilling to to give up your outrageous bargaining power that, in my opinion, just keeps sponging off of the rest of your state's citizens.

Government Employees are already safeguarded by our government and do not need blood sucking unions to suck the tax payer dry to protect government workers. What they need is to remember that not only are they too tax payers but they serve the people, they are public servants. They are not masters of the people for whom they work, they are servants - get that, this includes the teachers in Wisconsin. They are employees of the citizens and they already make a really nice salary with way too nice benefits as far as I see it (but of course who is it that seemingly cries for all this all of the time but teachers and other union members). How dare they want to propagate more of what, in my opinion, has brought them to this damnable economic situation in their state and what almost certainly is much the same of what brought us to our poor economic state federally.

Here was a man with the right idea as far as government employees going on strike was concerned - he offered them a good raise, then he negotiated with them when their union demanded an astronomical pay raise, then when they and the union kept demading - he warned them not to break the law by striking, then when they went out on strike - he fired them (but even then he gave them 48 hours of chances to reconsider):

It is high time to tell the unions to go screw themselves at least in the case of unionized government employees. They have been telling the rest of us to go screw ourselves for years while they have had it better than good, now they don't want to budge an inch or give up a dime. Shame on them but better yet - SCREW THEM they have become what they were supposed to be protecting against, in my opinion, they have been exploiting us as big business used to exploit the worker. The people they are exploiting are the tax payers as I see it.

All the best,
