On the heels of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's history-making recall
victory, the governor of nearby Indiana with his own record of
curtailing union benefits suggested public-sector unions are past their
prime and should be abolished.

"I think, really, government works better without them," Indiana Gov.
Mitch Daniels told "Fox News Sunday," when asked whether public-worker
unions should even exist.

Daniels had cracked down on collective bargaining for state workers

    Yes, I believe it is
    Unions have done more harm than good. Unions and Government workers don't mix. These people need to held accountable for the blunders they cause. With a union ,the member can whine to the union and get their job protected which is detremental to efficency. Remove the protection and you get better workers. A worker has to fear for his job or he/she will not care or do their best. you re fired

    Unions serve as protection for employees against health and safety violations by employers. Even unions, like any big organizations, have their problems, yet, without them, I have seen and experienced some very abusive working conditions.

    In the private sector, maybe. In the public sector I don't find them necessary.

    if you have good management and good staff, you will never need the Union

    Well one thing for sure , I am sick of what works better for government so I care less what Daniels has to say . I want to know when all these politicians are going to get off their azz and start working for the people instead of special interest groups that line their pockets with gold .

    Just Like I don't think every state is ready to accept same sex Marriage, I think some states have a ways to go before they go "Right To Work"

    I wouldn't be heartbroken if it did happen I used to work in a Union, basically it served as an extra tax.
