Those Damn Public Employee Babysitters
Okay, I'm sick and tired of hearing all this whining from so-called public "employees" who are little more than glorified babysitters. I mean, seriously: in what other business do workers have such gluttonous pensions, generous health-care plans, and inflated salaries? How much do these people WANT, anyway? They only work about half the year to begin with…maybe - MAYBE! - two thirds of the year. They get a whole season off, and they want to be treated like royalty!
I dunno. I'm just fed up with all this union blah-blah. I wanna take some of these people by the collar and shake 'em until they finally see the futility of their predicament. All they really do is provide a form of free babysitting service. No real learning goes on in their buildings, and if a day ends up being cancelled due to inclement weather, everyone at home goes into a shit-fit, trying to figure out how to alter their plans. It's ridiculous.
What these public "employee" pariahs out to do is just suck it up and get with the program. They need to take the pay cuts they have comin' to 'em, just like everyone else, and realize that the power & usefulness of their unions has been overstated for decades. Governors and other politicians need to double-down on their efforts to break the backs of these unions, and the workers themselves need to just tighten their belts and learn to make do with a little less.
Of course, I'm speaking here of professional athletes. Teachers, who are in charge of our childrens' education (and, by extension, the future of our society), ought to be paid a fucking fortune.
