State-Run Media: Our Polls Show Americans Don’t Mind That Public Workers Make Twice As Much As They Do – They Love Government Unions

Federal Workers Make Twice As Much As the Private Sector

USA Today reported this in August of last year:

At a time when workers’ pay and benefits have stagnated, federal employees’ average compensation has grown to more than double what private sector workers earn, a USA TODAY analysis finds.

Federal workers have been awarded bigger average pay and benefit increases than private employees for nine years in a row. The compensation gap between federal and private workers has doubled in the past decade.

The federal compensation advantage has grown from $30,415 in 2000 to $61,998 last year.

But, you like this. You want government and state workers to make twice as much as you.
At least, that’s what the state-run media is trying to sell you today.
USA Today reported:

Americans strongly oppose laws taking away the collective bargaining power of public employee unions, according to a new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll. The poll found 61% would oppose a law in their state similar to such a proposal in Wisconsin, compared with 33% who would favor such a law.

The only way government employees can continue to bilk the public is through lucrative union contracts. It’s also a great way for the far left to move taxpayer dollars from the producers to the democrat party.
No wonder the media is fighting so hard for these Wisconsin unions.

UPDATE: Tea Party Leaders urge Governor Scott Walker to STAND STRONG.
