I don't think the state members have the same golden parachutes the federals do......especially since they are only part time.....I tell you what should be don't legally and that is to vanquish all unions from government agencies.....there is no need to have someone that is paid by the people being held up by people that definitely do not support the will of the people.

From my understanding state members do have retirement benefits although they are part time. They may also have health insurance.
I agree with you on the unions they should not be in government agencies.
Unions at one time was a good thing but they have went way way overboard. Not so much in wages but protectionism and limitations on what members performance restrictions. There are other things as well.

Yep, the ruined the automobile business in america........and that's 25% of our economy. Barney and Dodd ruined the Housing market which was another 25% of our economy and.........now we see where the guilt lies, who their associates are and who is paying off who.
