Just In Particular...

Instapundit » Blog Archive » JOHN FUND: WHAT’S AT STAKE IN WISCONSIN: Plus, why the unions are really upset: Labor historian…: "The Wisconsin unions don’t seem to understand that Gov. Walker is just following what they have always asked for. Wealth redistribution. They say that the wealthy should share with the poor. Well, right now, the private sector worker makes about half of what the public sector worker does. Seems like the wealthy public sector should share.

Also, only a very small minority of private workers are unionized. Most of those unionized jobs have become so cost prohibitive that they are now overseas. I would say that with today’s technologies, those unionized school teachers could also be outsourced. Maybe they cannot see the writing on the wall. Or maybe they do.

Unions aren’t for wealth redistribution in general. Just in particular."
