It turns out that Harry Reid is trying to force states to allow public employees to unionize. The Democrats, our good friends the Progressives, want more public employee unionization. I wonder why. Could it have anything to do with getting more money from the tax payer flowing into Democrat (Progressive) campaigns?
From the Heritage Foundation:
The Senate may soon consider a bill that would force states to allow for the unionization of public employees. In addition to the extraordinary amount of mandates imposed under President Obama, Congress has been attempting to extend the burden of collective bargaining imposed upon every state and local government. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D–NV) recently reintroduced the Public Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act in an attempt to rush it through Congress before Republicans take control of the House in January. This legislation would mandate collective bargaining for police, firefighters, and emergency medical personnel—even in states that have passed laws to ensure this can’t happen.
