Union time on the taxpayers’ dime

Jim Scarantino has been doing some great work over at the New Mexico Watchdog site, but his recent report on taxpayers footing the bill for workers to represent their union — rather than doing their actual work — is a must-read. Cities across the state have fallen prey to this practice which highlights a real problem of government employee unions.

Cities (and other governments) should hire and contract with their workers individually because that is what they are. Unions simply create hostility unless their chosen candidate (like Marty Chavez) holds office and goes along with union wishes.

  1. Unions are an anachronism. They destroy businesses, cities, states, and are a massive detriment to our nation. They hold monopolies and foster thuggery on non-union workers. Abolish them! Let’s make America a Right To Work country.
