Rage. Probably political rage. Maybe just personal rage. Lots of sarcasm and cynicism. Also pretty pictures.

"State Rep. Ritch Workman, R-Melbourne, lauded Weatherford’s idea as being a right step toward aligning state workforce careers with the private sector."

- When the average “career” in the private sector lasts 6 years, what does that mean for the private sector’s “retirement systems?…DON’T FIX WHAT ISN’T BROKEN. Leave the FL State Retirement System pension alone.

Supposedly this is a compelling cartoon that shows how ‘crazy’ those public sector unions are.

So what, because some people working in the Private Sector (where, in my line of work, the pay is much higher than in the Public Sector) supposedly don’t have pensions or benefits, the people working in the Public Sector suddenly don’t deserve the benefits that they’ve worked for? Bullshit. How about corporations that are making record profits put some of that money back into their workforce and stop making decent hard-working public sector employees into the bad guy? Unions happened for a reason - workers were and once again are being mistreated and taken advantage of and in this recession where so many people are jobless, they are a dime-a-dozen. Are we seriously going to have to repeat the entire 20th century? (and not just Labor issues…)
