Public Union: Public Enemy

We aren’t sure that we agree that public unions are the “enemy” of the public, but the influence and power they wield in politics and the election of candidates with whom they will later negotiate employment contracts is not in the best public interest.

This video from Prager U. goes into the problem and the history of public sector unions a little more.

Public-sector unions have been gaming the political system for decades, bankrupting whole cities and plunging states into massive debt. How did this happen and can it be stopped? Akash Chougule, senior policy fellow for Americans for Prosperity, has the answers in this sobering video from Prager University.

The Supreme Court decision in Janus v. American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees mentioned in the video can be found here.
