- Public employees are too highly compensated.
- Public employees make more than you
- Public employees should not make more than you.
- We should take away their ability to bargain so they can't make more than you.
Properly framed, the debate should look like this:
- The state is in fiscal trouble.
- We value our state employees
- Collective bargaining for anything other than pay will put us back into the mess we are currently in, regardless of the give-backs currently obtained.
Call me crazy.
