Understanding New Mexico’s Public Employee Compensation/Pension Issues

Over at NMPolitics.net, I address some points made in a recent column by AFSCME’s Carter Bundy. I also explain that despite the lack of Wisconsin or Ohio-style unrest over government employee pensions, New Mexico still has a serious problem that must be dealt with sooner than later and that liberals should be at least as conservatives are about the problem.

  1. Labor unions, specifically public employee unions, have long outlived their usefulness. Their wage-benefit package far exceeds their productivity at the expense of the tax payer.
    Let’s hear it for the Governors of Ohio and Wisconsin and pray our new Governor has the intellect and fortitude to folllow in their footsteps.

  2. I would need to see the raw data that is quoted in Mr. Bundy’s article after reading the article, his arguments seem to be the same as he is accusing the other side of doing. Most reports I have seen support the more conservative views on the public vs. private pay scales. Plus I view the public union as more of a cancer on taxpayers back, but then I am against public unions, the boss should not be part of the union.

  3. JACK DETWEILLER IS RIGHT ON.

    I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A LIST OF ALL THE PUBLIC EMPLOYEE UNIONS IN NEW MEXICO.

    I WOULD LIKE TO OBTAIN A COPY OF THEIR CONTRACTS.

    JIM J ALLEN IS ALSO RIGHT ON.

    WE SHOULD USE THE WISCONSIN LAW AS A MODEL AND
    ADOPT IT FOR NEW MEXICO.
