California Unions Ask You To Save “The Little Guy” – No Not You…Them

I’ve found that in most articles about Big Government, especially in newspapers that are left-leaning, the most important piece of information is in the last paragraph.

I don’t think that’s an accident at all…I think many people don’t read entire articles down to the last word. I think we’re lucky if they get past the headline.

I think I’ll just start reading articles from these newspapers from the bottom up so I can get the important info first.

With that…from the last paragraph of yesterday’s LA Times article on California pension reform, we have the following…

“Under current law and union contracts, for instance, retirement packages allow some classes of government workers — mostly police officers, firefighters and prison guards — to retire as young as age 50 with a pension equal to nearly their entire salary.”

The first 19/20ths of the article were spent covering all the Union whining about how it’s not their fault.

The Unions are blaming Wall Street, crying foul that the “Big Guy” hurt the “Little Guy” when the stock market crashed reducing the value of Union employees guaranteed pension benefits. We were all hurt by the stock market.

Let’s define what the Unions mean when they say, “Little Guy” because it’s not what you think it means.

The Unions are trying to force you, the “Non-Union Little Guy” to cover the losses of the “Union Member Little Guy.”

Think about that for a second…the Unions and their members know you don’t have guaranteed retirement funds in your 401(k) and they know you’ve taken a loss in that 401(k), and even though they know all that…they are still demanding that you pony up and pay higher taxes to make sure they get their full retirement payout.

How does it feel to be the wrong kind of “Little Guy?” The guy in today’s video can tell you all about it.
