Curious About Unions

By Ken Tucci, WBZ-TV

I’m curious as to why it took so long for someone in government to stand up to public employee unions (Wisconsin Governor and teachers’ union).  Unions are obsolete.  They no longer serve the purpose for which they were originally organized.  Those of us who pay high real estate taxes are getting the worst deal as our police and fire departments (our safety) suffer while the schools get the bulk of our tax dollars. – Rose, Raynham

  I’m posting Rose’s question/comments, not in an attempt to answer, but as a way for you all to discuss.  It’s a big issue.

There’s no question that union membership is declining.  And there’s no question that public employee unions are under a lot of fire, and not just in Wisconsin.

What do you think?  And please be polite.  Thanks.
