PragerU: Public Unions are a Public Enemy

There was a time not too long ago when everyone agreed that public sector unions – unions formed by workers who are employed by the government – were a terrible idea. Today, however, public sector unions are commonplace, and their consequences have been devastating.

For one, public sector unions force you to spend money to support politicians that you may not agree with. If you refuse to pay, you lose your job.

Once public sector unions have used their money to elect union-friendly politicians, they negotiate contracts with the politicians they put in power, creating deals that benefit them tremendously at the expense of the American taxpayer. To make matters even worse, public sector unions make it almost impossible to fire a government employee regardless of how incompetent they are while also promising to pay employees pensions that the government cannot afford.

There is some good news, though: the stranglehold that public sector unions have on government employment may be coming to an end. To date, 28 states have passed right-to-work laws that make it illegal to force a worker to join a union as a condition of their employment. Without the ability to force government employees to become members, the influence of public sector unions drastically declines.
