Here’s what the SB 5 proponents want the people to ignore. Public workers make a fair wages and have decent benefits because we bargain for them. Too many private workers don’t have the opportunity to bargain. Collective bargaining in the private sector is at historic lows, far lower than other developed countries. As these rights have slipped away, American workers’ wages have stagnated. When they talk about the economy, they don’t want people to understand that without rising purchasing power for American workers, our economy stagnates and that’s why we are where we are. But no, they’d rather blame the middle class for the mess caused by Wall Street and their big corporate donors.
Make politicians start serving We the People and stop blaming them.
