..There is a significant difference between private industry unions and gov unions, and it's the gov unions that make slaves of the tax payer. Private sector business must show a profit to allow for wage increase a private business cannot continue to pay higher and higher wages if there is no profit. While gov unions are not controlled by profit and loss.  To keep paying higher and higher benefits in a gov union ends up with the Detroit effect, where the city goes bankrupt,services fail or the Illinois effect where property taxes scream out of control and services to the people are greatly cut.. Further competition  and the market control private unions while gov unions have  no competition ,where when those gov unions expect an increase that increase comes in the form of higher taxes.FDR, Ron Regan,Jimmy Carter  all did not favor gov unions,since they recognized at the end of the day it was ,it is a uncontrolled tax on the general population.

"There has been little focus on exactly what Collective Bargaining is, and how it works in government. Collective Bargaining gives unions a monopoly on the government's workforce." ....what? That's not the definition of Collective Bargaining, nor is it true. This video is very misguided.

Collective bargaining and/or Unions in this country have all but been busted down to zero for working American's. Union's do not cause the kind of financial degradation that they are being blamed for. The top money grabbers of our time want Union's out of the way so that they can, work you for longer hours, pile unreasonable or extra amounts of work on the Employee, kill your benefits, and lower your wages.
