6/7/2012 ANDY'S INSIGHTS & UNPOPULAR ESSAYS. Thoughts about Gov Scott Walker's Win, and what is "Equal"?
After Gov. Walker's win there were people in Wisconsin screaming, "This is the END of Democracy in America!"
For America's left-wing idiots, "Democracy" really does mean: "Unequal pay for equal work," and the LEGAL RIGHT of left-wing Unions to Mafia extort money from everyone.
WAIT! I'm WRONG! I was just reading the Constitution and here on page 4 it says, "Unions have a Constitutional Right to collect significantly unequal pay for the SAME work that others will do for less."
Anyway. Unions are 10% to 100% HIGHER for the SAME WORK. Many State and local Governments, without their Unions, could cut costs AND give the tax payers the SAME PRODUCT.
Here's the Bottom Line: America's collective Governments have once again proven that "Market Economies" work, and "Socialist-Communist Economies" do NOT.
If a Gov offers a job at $20 an hour, and a worker is truly worth more. Then that worker is FREE to go to an organization at will pay what the worker is worth. If that worker CANNOT find a job paying more than $20 that means the worker is only worth $20. Yes, it's "nice" to over pay if you have all the money in the world, but America is de facto bankrupt.
Unions are NOT about "Equal," they are all about Unequal. They take people who are WORTH $20 an hour and force the Business/Gov into paying $40 an hour. That's okay if every Government in America had unlimited funds, but the truth is that the "Fat Years" are Gone Forever.
Even some people on Social Security/Welfare are "GETTING IT." The SAME service for 20% LESS it's like 20% More Social Security $.
Buying the SAME Car for 15% Less it's like making 19% MORE salary because you have to pay TAX on what you EARN, but there's Not a Tax on your cost savings.
Given a choice of making an extra $1,000 dollars, or saving an extra $1,000 on costs, you are ALWAYS money ahead to take the SAVINGS because that's NOT taxed.
At the Government-Business end, to make $1,000 "spendable" it will cost you between $500 to $20,000 to get that $1,000. But $1,000 SAVED is like pure profit that's already been paid for.
A Gov that can SAVE $500,000 is making a LOT MORE than a Gov that raises tax rates by $500,000. The ding-dong Keynesian crackpots in most Governments work very hard at NOT "Getting It."
As usual, Congress is deeply Schizophrenic. They scream, "Equal pay for equal work." But suggest that Gov. bids for products and services be open to non-union contractors. Thus getting the SAME PRODUCT for 5% to 300% LESS taxpayer cost, and the Democrats in particular will start foaming at the mouth and screaming, "It's the END of Democracy in America."
