So what's going over my head? Do you think a state amendment on pensions would have any affect on non state workers and bargaining units? If you do, you're simply an uninformed individual.
Contracts are signed between the union and the employer. The street workers, the cops, firemen, etc.... negotiate with Hagnauer and company. Sure, you could tell put unions out of business and hire people at minimum wage. Do you think any democrat in this or any other state is going to do so?
Every state official that has tried to break the unions has enjoyed a short political career. Won't happen ever in our very blue state.
