Re: “Don’t blame public employee unions” (letter, 2-28).
I concur with the writer that all public employees deserve living wages and benefits. Where the letter writer and I may disagree does not involve this issue.
It involves the ability of public employee unions to support political candidates financially and with campaign labor and to then sit across from these same, now elected and now beholden, lawmakers and negotiate wages and benefits.
In the Jimmy Hoffa Teamster days, these were known as “sweetheart contracts.” I fail to see any public benefit from this arrangement.
