Are Government Unions Out Of Control? An Infographic

by Tyler Durden

This week, Arizona legislators are voting on a package of bills that would be "Wisconsin on steroids" -- banning collective bargaining, release time and automatic deduction of union dues from paychecks. The unions plan state capitol protests this week, so things are heating up and the story has already appeared in various national publications. Since union protests are planned for the capitol tomorrow it will likely involve a lot of drama and TV coverage. Yet like every issue there are pros and cons, and government unions are a very sensitive topic to be sure. While the TV coverage will certainly focus on the favorable side of unionization (after all, what is better for the economy than more people collecting paycheks.... even if these are ever diminishing paychecks) here is an infographic from the Goldwater Institute looking at the cost side of the equation.

9916 Implying elected officials serve people and not multimillion dollar corporate bosses out to make money at the expense of the nation.

Yeah, not to mention the "streets being patrolled" by armed taxfeeders is hardly a "service," same goes for the children being edjumacated. Also, the officials do serve union bosses, but they have competing interests in the form of corporate welfare queens who they serve as well, Virginia is a massive recipient of federal tax dollars.
