Two more articles on the unions/pay/pensions issue

Today, NYT: .  Summary: it’s not the pay, it’s the pension and disability benefits.  And the work rules.

Recently, Fortune/CNN: . Summary: the unions are (generally) not the cause.

Neither article supports the current moves to strip unions of the right to strike and/or engage in collective bargaining.

  1. Thanks, David. I agree with the statement by the author of the first article: “To be clear, I’m making an argument that’s different from “Government workers are overpaid.” I’m saying that they are paid in the wrong ways — in ways that make life easier on union leaders and elected officials, at least initially, but that eventually hurt both workers and taxpayers.”
