It amazes me how much more money the government employees make over the private sector. Are they justified in making so much more money just because they work for the government? It is also near imposable to fire a government employee because of the union. I feel the it's time to right size these employees pay. If they choose to fight it with strikes then we need to make sure that our reps fire them for their GREED. We were not created to serve them. There are enough people out of work to fill all the positions fast. It's time we stand up and not be intimidated by the government employees unions. The unions have been talking greed for a long time and it's time they take their own medicine for a change. I'm not willing to pay more in taxes so they can live high off the hog. They had a great run of high incomes and they need to be grateful for what we have paid them in the past. But those times are over and the greedy unions in the government must go. I'm sure they will try their strong arm mafia style intimidation. But we are a country of laws. And if they play their intimidation on those willing to stand up against the greedy unions then we need to be stronger and stand will them. The greedy government unions have gone to peoples houses to scare them into submission. The greedy unions have made it clear that they are willing to break us over their greedy pay and benefits. So we must be willing to break the greedy unions in return. I'd like to hear both sides of this issue. If you disagree with me then tell me why you think a government employee should make so much more then the private sector? And if you agree with me that we need to fix the wage discrepancies, then how should it be done and what do you think the effect of those actions on our society will be? We have seen the violence the greedy unions are willing to do in order to get what they want. We have seen it in this country and in the EU. Are we strong enough as a people and ready to handle the violence that will come if the greedy unions don't get what they want? Thanks to the Democratic Party they have just made the greedy unions bigger and more expensive to we the people paying their bills.
