I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
So the PUP and those affected by Act 10 tell me that if it happened to me, I would do exactly what they are doing!
They really don’t know me. Would I like it? – No, but I understand it and have taken pay cuts even voluntarily, but I would still be keeping my job.
My questions to them is – What makes you so special that you don’t think you should pay for any of your pension or health care plan and what makes you think we taxpayers should pay more so the public sector didn't take a hit?
Do you know what you will get?
Yelling, dollar per hour, dollar per hour! They never want to talk about the whole compensation package, unless they are negotiating them.
Static, fluff, non-answer answers, ignoring it or the big lie, public sector workers are paid less!
And that myth, that big lie, that Public Sector workers are paid less and thus need the better benefits packages! Yes, that is one big lie!
All one needs to do is look at the ‘Prevailing Wage’ clauses/ordinances!
The other part of that doesn’t hold water is most Public Sector jobs don’t have private counter parts to compare to and the “Union” provides the compare info. Like that isn’t biased!
Oh yeah, on that big lie again of public sector workers are paid less, don’t take my word on it, take Obama’s administration word on it.
