Public sector unions are fine, and in a democracy should always be allowed to continue. There are, in my mind, two different questions:
1. Why are there always so many "hundreds of thousands" of public sector jobs created?
2. Why are industrial regulations so different for public sector workers?
Can I illustrate this from an interpretation of mine from "The Wire"
Series 1 and 2; Follows the gangs on the street, the killings and the police forces
attempts to fight the lawlessness around the situation on the ground.
Series 3: Follows the docks and the illegal importation of drugs and prostitutes..
Series 4 and 5: Follows the politicians, the mayors, the police chiefs, the senators and the representatives. Both the last series focused on the people who appoint the public sector, the people who are at the head of the public sector. The only conclusion I can draw from the series as a whole is that the politicians and all the people in the final group are bigger criminals than the criminals. The gangs screw each other: The politicians screw us and the crooks.
So, do we abolish politicians?
