Re "Public worker pay on rebound" (Capitol & California, Oct. 28): When I started in the work force, working for the public sector was always considered lower paid but secure. The private sector paid better but demanded a quality end product.
So here we are today with public sector unions controlling the people who authorize wage increases. In today's public sector, the employee enjoys higher wages, benefits and outlandish retirements, while the private sector jobs have decreased.
And who is funding these huge benefits to the public sector employees? Private business through the taxes they pay to keep their doors open. It is time that collective bargaining for public sector jobs be done away with.
Just how fair is it to bargain with the person you donate money to for their campaign?
