Obama rallies protestors to support union control of WI state employees. Taxpayers: “What’s a pension??”
President Obama’s political machine is working to get thousands of protestors to gather in Madison, Wisconsin to help unions maintain control of state employees. The state employees, who make significantly more than the taxpayers who fund their paychecks, are not willing to increase their personal contributions to their pensions (for you taxpaying private workers out there a pension is a state employee perk where taxpayers keep paying you after you retire), nor are they willing to increase their 4% personal contribution to their health care premium costs.
For those of you not familiar with unions, they are the collective bargaining groups that allow state workers to keep their jobs after they’ve become unproductive, or there’s no longer a legitimate need for them, all while increasing their salary year after year based on a predetermined schedule unrelated to their performance.
Now get back out there and continue your search for a job, taxpayer, and make sure you work hard so the state employees can get their yearly raises!
For those of you who already have a job, and it’s funded by taxpayers, and you’ve been there long enough to have tenure so you can’t be fired: Pick up a sign! Reagan would’ve fired you by now for leaving all those kids without teachers for so long (he fired all the air traffic controllers), but Obama’s in office now, so times have “changed.”
