Poll Finds Americans Reject Republican Assault On Unions

Poll Finds Americans Reject Republican Assault On Unions |

A new Bloomberg News national poll finds that Americans believe, by a wide margin, that public sector workers should have the right to collectively bargain. 64 percent of respondents, including a plurality of Republicans, believe public workers should be able to bargain collectively for their wages, while 63 percent believe that states should not be able to break pension agreements they’ve already made. This, of course, comes after a number of Republican governors used budget woes to justify removing collective bargaining rights from public employees.

Some TeaBaggers finally figured it out...especially after they looked at their union membership cards!

Let's see how they vote this time around.
