I wrote about these leaches a week ago. They're on the WSJ Op-Ed page radar again. And with good reason:
As we can see from the desperate economic and fiscal woes of California, New Jersey, New York and other states with dominant public unions, this has become a major problem for the U.S. economy and small-d democratic governance. It may be the single biggest problem. The agenda for American political reform needs to include the breaking of public unionism's power to capture an ever-larger share of private income.Eventually these public service unions kill the host. See above-mentioned NY, NJ, & CA.
