It’s official: people who work are now horrible and greedy — at least if they work a union job. This is what the Republican Party is [and for a while has been] saying, but in the past weeks the GOP decided to take action against those damned workers who just want to take, take, take — workers’ rights, that is.
Here at the Journal, we are absolutely appalled at the idea of depriving union workers of their collective bargaining rights. Workers in Indiana, Wisconsin, and Ohio are being threatened with limits going as far as layoffs by the ever-adamant Republican Party. The GOP is so adamant about getting its way — all the time — that the party often acts like the bratty youngest child in the family who won’t take no for an answer when mom won’t buy a chocolate bar from the candy store.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is attempting to strip collective bargaining rights from government workers, and in his mind, it’s his way or the highway. Seriously, he’s warning everyone and their mother that if his proposal to royally screw workers does not pass, down with the jobs — 1,500 to be exact.
Not every Republican is out to get workers in the public sector. In fact, some are actually opposing the efforts of their conservative comrades. Democrats are both mortified and terrified, as many believe this whole load of nonsense is a masked effort to eliminate a major support group of their party, organized labor.
This editorial is not an attack on the Republican Party; it’s an attack on the morons who want the greatest good for the least amount. We’re truly hoping that the Democratic Party decides to stand its ground [for once lately] and protect the rights of the common man, the working class American. Something is seriously wrong in a country when the best interest of its citizens is put on the back burner and selfish financial interest is moved to the front.
Unions in the attacked states said they’re willing to compromise, but honestly, why compromise? It’s time that the Democrats throw themselves on the floor in a fit of rage and demand they get their candy.
