We told you on Friday that freshman Congressman Dennis Ross, the new chairman of the subcommittee that oversees the US Postal Service, doesn’t have a very high opinion of labor unions. Yesterday he made it clear that he doesn’t think public sector workers should be allowed to organize at all:
Notwithstanding his apparent nostalgia for the Great Depression, the Congressman finds a solid tea-bagger style argument against unions: they aren’t in the Constitution!
… which makes you wonder which non-Constitutional organization will be next! The AAA? The Book of the Month Club? Come to think of it, is the Republican Party mentioned in the Constitution? Hmmm…
And if public sector workers defy the politicians? There’s always the “air traffic controller solution”.
Postal and other federal workers may be in for an interesting two years. They may also want to ponder what will happen to their livelihoods if the GOP gains more power in 2012.
