Who's the most responsible party for causing the economic issues happening across the country? AND, WHO'S responsible for creating roadblocks to any hope of economic sanity????
Maybe, just maybe, Americans will finally begin to see the damage that UNIONS have and are causing to any hope of financial responsibility on the part of local governments. Faced with bankruptcy, and severe employee cutbacks, many towns and cities have asked for a LITTLE help form volunteers, but to their surprise are finding that people are more than willing to step up and lend a hand, FOR NOTHING but the satisfaction of doing SOMETHING to help others! THAT IS WHAT THE AMERICAN SPIRIT IS ALL ABOUT!!!
But then comes the unions, the 'organizers', the so-called 'protectors' of the working people. Would they step up and offer their services? NOT A CHANCE! They want to cut it all off!!!! After all, it's cutting into 'their' peoples livelihoods (actually the union bosses pockets). Where a city, forced to cut back their maintenance force for cleanup and gardening service in their parks and buildings, received an outpouring of volunteer help to perform those tasks, the city employees union threatened law suits against the city unless the volunteers were prevented from using any kind of machinery or tools. A senior center, forced to cut back staff and days of service, and possible closure, has received an overwhelming response from volunteers doing everything from cooking meals, cleanup, transportation, and clerical work to assisting seniors with their everyday problems of life.
The union response.....'if our members cannot work there and get paid a 'living' wage, they should not be allowed to use volunteers'.
Another city, forced to lay-off 1/3 of their police officers, now have a force TWICE THE SIZE, as VOLUNTEER officers have filled the gap, and then some!
