Public Employee Unions Wrong

John Hinderaker, of the blog Powerline, weighs in with trenchant observations concerning public employee unions:
For the large majority of our history, public employee unions have been illegal. It is only since the 1960s and 1970s that they have been allowed. (snip) The United States has carried on a four-decade experiment in legalization, and the results are in: public employee unions are a cancer on our country.
Hinderaker's conclusion is one with which COTTonLINE concurs:
Legalization of public employee unions has been a disaster. It is time to end the experiment and make them illegal once again, at both the federal and state levels. I expect that this will become one of the great political issues of the next decade.
