Government Unions Affect Us All


The founders of the labor movement viewed unions as a vehicle to get workers more of the profits they help create (“The New Villains: Teachers, Cops? A Union Backlash,” Street Talk, March 9). Government workers, however, don't generate profits. They merely negotiate for more tax money. When government unions strike, they strike against taxpayers. Franklin D. Roosevelt considered this “unthinkable and intolerable.”
