Public-sector unions interfere with the public interest (Charles Lane, January 27, 2014, Washington Post)
Posted by Orrin Judd at January 28, 2014 5:50 PMIt may be only a matter of time before these disparate debates converge and squarely pose the question that lies at the root of them all: Is public-sector collective bargaining in the public interest?The answer is no. All members of the public use schools, roads, parks and other government services -- and pay taxes to support them. Their interest lies in receiving the highest-quality services at the lowest feasible cost. Period.Public-sector unions interfere.
