This story about high school students walking out of class to protest their governor’s proposal to limit collective bargaining with teachers reminded me of a caller to a local radio talk show a few weeks ago.
The show host was discussing unions for government workers. A caller asked, what does that tell us about the government if the government workers have to unionize?
It tells us that they don’t even trust the government. Why should we?
Yet, strangely, these unions tend to support bigger and more powerful government.
The relationship between unions and big government is symbiotic.
