This is relating to the union strikes in Wisconsin. For a long time we've paid government employees more than we can afford. We can't continue to spend more than we have and go further and further into debt, common sense. The workers have to see a reduction in pay or benefits, or else some of them have to be laid off. That's just the facts. The government employees of Wisconsin don't want to take a pay cut. They don't want to have to adjust and live on less. But this is something that virtually everyone has to do at some point. Downsizing your lifestyle is hard--very hard--but it's not impossible. Just like it's hard to break an addiction, people are used to spending a certain amount of money and it's hard to break that addiction and pay less. But it's necessary if the money just isn't there to spend. The state of Wisconsin is broke, and the public union workers need to learn to live on less. But instead of taking it like men (or women), they're whining and crying. What do they want? They don't really want anything. They want to continue getting paid the same even though there's no money for it, which doesn't make any sense. They're just whining and crying to the government because they have to make an adjustment, just like everyone has to do at some point. I find it to be pretty rotten of those workers. They're whining to get more money, even though it would be irresponsible. There's no higher cause to their protests, just "I want", give more money to me. It's pretty pathetic.
