A Glimmer of Hope: Public Sentiment Toward Unions Cools
This made my day:
If this is true and all the “we put our lives on the line” and “your kids need us” and “we are America’s beating heart” nonsense has finally lost its hold on our imaginations, maybe we can bring these guys down to earth. Fiscal sanity might not be just a pipe dream anymore.
But [the unwillingness to challenge unions is] changing, as evidenced by the Star-Ledger’s decision to shame the Marlboro educators. The public is beginning to question the legitimacy of public unions’ power because taxpayers know that commitments for worker health care and pensions are busting state budgets all over the country.
