A Government Worker Takedown from an Unexpected Source

Thomas Lifson
The public employee unions do not realize the forces they have unleashed with their greed. Openly boasting of their relationship with Obama as they are protected from the recession as no other Americans, recipients of lavish benefits unthinkable in the private sector, they have stirred deep resentment among the American public, a phenomenon which can only grow as taxes rise.

It has gotten to the point where even Saturday Night Live mocks the overpaid, underperforming public employee stereotype. To be sure there are dedicated, brave, and hard-working employees of government. But slackers don't get culled out, and instead are indulged - particularly if they are teachers with tenure.

Watch and enjoy this takedown of greedy public employees.
