The War Against Workers

Today I'm angry and sick about the continuing war against workers, especially public sector workers. It has now hit NJ and I have to vent. The Legislature voted to strip state workers of the right to collective bargain for health care, to make us pay much more toward our health care benefits, and to raid the pensions of the retired. The NJEA (to which I belong) was a leader in the fight against this legislation. For an excellent analysis, read our NJEA President's remarks here.

I hope people wake up. How can we continue to allow our elected officials to get away with such policies that hurt the middle class and below? We had all better start doing something to reform the system. To those who think that this "couldn't happen to them"... don't be so sure. They're gunning for us, the public workers. Who do you think will be next?

Get informed. Know the issues and keep watch on what our officials are doing. Let them know what you think, and VOTE!
