64% say government workers should not be represented by a union
I was shocked when I saw this number. The gravy train is really over for public employee unions. Citizens are sick to death of their strikes, threats of strikes, whining, caterwauling, and incompetence.
It wouldn't be this bad probably, if government, at any level, worked. But Americans look at the cluster fark that government has become and wonder why we are paying these bozos so much?
A new poll from the Washington-based Clarus Group asked:
Do you think government employees should be represented by labor unions that bargain for higher pay, benefits and pensions ... or do you think government employees should not be represented by labor unions?
A full 64% of the respondents said "no."
That includes 42% of Democrats, and an overwhelming majority of Republicans. Only 49% of Democrats think public workers should be in unions at all.
That's on the fundamental right to organize, before you get to wages and benefits. And that puts Scott Walker in a pretty good political place.
The poll was conducted using 1001 registered voters.
A huge backlash against what's happening in Wisconsin is building. It's Obamacare all over again only this time, it's even worse. Obama has publicly sided with the bad guys and Democrats are being seen as the party standing in the way of getting our fiscal house in order at the federal and state level.
Let's hope Democrats continue to have a death wish on this issue.
