Daniels: End public worker unions




WASHINGTON, June 10 (UPI) -- Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels said Sunday he thinks the "government works better" without public worker unions.

In 2005, Daniels ended collective bargaining rights for state workers on his first day in office. In 2011, he restricted teachers' bargaining rights and this year, he signed a law that said workers don't have to join a union to get a job, "Fox News Sunday" said.

In an interview on the show, the Republican governor said he believes the state of Indiana has improved without public worker unions.

"I think government works better without them. I really do. You know, in our state, we had a 16-year run with so-called collective bargaining. And we did end it," Daniels said.

2. I moved to Indiana in 1986

I noticed the poor construction of roads immediately. That isn't all. Where I am at the roads flood when it rains in the city. They have combined sewer and water drainage pipes.

You get what you pay for here in Indiana. Actually, you get less than what you pay for in taxes.

3. Yeah, right, Mitch . . .

It's working out so well in WI. Don't gloat just because we don't do recalls here; we'll be voting you out of office soon enough.
