It’s refreshing to hear criticism about government unions from private sector union members. My criticisms of government unions are levelled at the union leaders and political tom-foolery they are engaged in against American taxpayers. It’s time to kick these taxpayer-supported trough-feeders to the curb.

As a longtime member of an International construction union may I add that I and ‘some’ co-workers understand that unions were never meant to be instruments to pry monies out of the hands of taxpayers…They were designed to force greedy industrialists to provide a living wage and safe workplace…The American taxpayer is not a greedy industrialist…he/she is a hostage in orchestrated destruction of this once great nation by corrupt union officials and democratic politicans intent on feathering their nests at any cost…Private unions? Yes…Public unions? Absolutely not.
