I have been waiting for 40 years for the GOP to take a Stand in this State!!
It is absolutely incorrect that there are more public sector employees than private sector employees in Minnesota or in any other state.

I wonder how many of the people who post antiunions comments are actually paid thugs. Paid to troll. Paid to attack. Paid to foster resentment.
We can see past your lies. These trolls do not represent working America. No matter how much you shove your lies down our throats we will continue to hold on to truth. We are honorable people who work day in, day out. We do not want something for nothing. We want something to show for our 30+ years of labor. We serve. We protect. We build. We will continue to unite as brothers and sisters.
Watch 'Inside Job'. Know your enemy. Don't attack the scapegoats. See past these fools, trolls, and pawns.
I agree with you. I'm convinced that many anti- union comments are posted by paid agitators.

Look at your moniker, sir/madam. Retire at 55, right? I'm 45 and I've worked my tail off in my career for 23 year so far. By working my tail off, I mean 60 hours a week with high stress to deliver expectations. All the while, you were being paid to work a secure job that allowed you to retire at 55 on my and others like me dime's and we'll likely retire somewhere between 65 and 70, if we're lucky.
And you don't understand my rage? Really?

Nope, very few are envious of you. There is a sense of self worth when you produce something that is actually needed by the general public, and they choose to buy it in the open marketplace.

No one in the public sector can make that claim. Consumers are forced by law to buy what they have, or to pay for what they have even though you don't want or need it.

You really do need an attitude adjustment. And it seems that the tax payers are providing that this year, aren't they?

Just keep in mind that wonderful Lib saying:“They need to pay their fair share.”

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'.

You mean like envy of those evil CEO's that make sure the company succeeds and make sure you all still get to go to work?
