  1. Steven Greenhut’s exposure of out-of-control unions should cause every union leader and union member to thank Greenhut’s efforts to restore unions to their original purpose of ensuring reasonable pay and benefits to public employees. Fire fighter and police officer unions need to be reminded that they represent public servants not action figure heroes who deserve out-of-this-world pay, benefits and pensions.

  2. Quoting van get it da artiste ….”Fire fighter and police officer unions need to be reminded that they represent public servants not action figure heroes who deserve out-of-this-world pay, benefits and pensions.”

    You must be living in a DREAM world They have NEVER thought of themselves as “servants”.

    Firemen/Policemen are the WORST offender of the GIveme-Giveme-Giveme attitude. No level of pay, pensions, and benefits, however EXCESSIVE is ever enough !

    When I grew up calling cops PIGS meant something entirely different. Today the term certainly fits !
