    Unions will always be the wage and benefit equalizer for the under represented in California.

    Lets face it. You want cheap labor, cheap products and bow at importers’s feet daily….your addicted to big box store and corporate fast, fast casual and relaxed dining joints!

    You want it all…..the poor workers ask for some equity in this great State.

    There is nothing wrong with purchasing good quality at the best price. And there are plenty of US made products to purchase that are not made by union employees. You market your talents and skills for the best paying job you can find. We don’t need unions antmore with the labor laws we have in place.

    What we do not need are Government Unions, these are the slimeballs that give labor a bad name.

    What happened in Wisconson was, the Non-RAGWUS workers read about the pay, benefits, perks, and Pensions being paid to the RAGWUS feeders and at first assumed it had to be a misprint. When they realized it was not a misprint it was then the government were in trouble. The private sector unions are not the problem, the governement unions are the evil ones. :)

    Unions assist the worker to gain equitable treatment in the marketplace. Some posters are both cruel and exceptionally greedy possessive types…..if they were in charge minorities would work and live in squallor…history repeats given the chance!

    Burrito Bro, what’s with the race baiting?

    The RAGWUS fools are far from living in squalor. In fact it is because of the RAGWUS thieves that the lower end workers will be living in those circumstances, based on the huge pay, benefits, perks, and pensions paid out to these narcissitic creeps of government. :)

    Had no idea government workers are considered evil. They are really nice at DMV office, unemployment office and when getting MediCal and food stamps. It is really hard getting on your feet in California.

    It is real hard for all of to get on our feet and stay there! It would be a lot easier if there was NO GOVERNMENT!! Let the private sector take it over. Less waste as we are so over taxed and fee’d to death to pay for over generous salaries and then retiree healthcare and retirement benefits to the ultimate 1%…. and they are the 1% by the time you look at when they retire, how long they live and their guaranteed benefit with a COLA each year… I can not retire, I will have to work until 70 or 80 just to pay for the 1% blood suckers!!! The liberals spew this ‘pay your fair share” When is the public sector union blood suckers going to pay their fair share?

    Some right wing nut interviewing Calle and some other Ayn Rand nut about public employees. This is the very epitome of the wing-nut echo chamber.
