First a town in California goes bankrupt, now the mayor of Scranton, PA has cut all municipal employee wages to the minimum wage. Rotten ol' Republican, right? No, he's a Dem and the city council is run by Dem's. They are out of money and can't find a way to extort more out of the taxpayer.
This is just the beginning. Public employees are sucking the taxpayer dry with their outrageously generous benefits and it is getting to the point that few if any will have a job when it all shakes out. Guess they thought they could kill the golden goose and still get the golden eggs. Probably learned that at the knee of their liberal professors.
Despite the hatred the Wisconsin public employee union members feel towards Scott Walker, he probably saved their jobs for the most part. When it all shakes out, they most likely will be indebted to him.
Unfortunately, their will be thousands of others throughout this country that will not be as lucky.
