Most Americans don’t support unions for public workers

As the nation’s eyes fix upon the fascinating battle in Wisconsin, pitting the Republican Governor Scott Walker against public employee union, a poll from the non-partisan Clarus Research Group suggests that most Americans would probably be on the governor’s side on this issue.

Clarus' nationwide study found that 64 percent of American people think state workers should not be able to join labor unions.

Another 29 percent believe that government employees should be represented by unions that bargain for higher pay, benefits and pensions.

The survey also uncovered a deep divide along party lines-- Republicans and independents strongly oppose unionization for government employee. Indeed, only 10 percent of Republicans and 23 percent of independents support the right of public employees to be represented by unions.

Contrarily, 49 percent of Democrats think they should be able to unionize.

By region, voters in the Northeastern states were most supportive of public workers in unions, (42 percent), with Southerners the least supportive (24 percent).

"As pressures to cut state and federal budgets intensify, government employee unions are likely to become a major issue in the 2012 election,” said Ron Faucheux, President of Clarus Research Group.


I don't know how this ended up here, since I was in the P&R forum when I posted it. Please move. Thank-you. Bye.

I don't support Unions for public servants either, the main reasons being, Unions are often like a snake constricting the employer one squeeze at a time... Also Businesses are better able to control this squeeze by the simply reality of the "market place".

Government has no such mechanism ... they just pass the higher cost on to the local tax payer with no option of -Going out of business.

Also Unions way out gun the School board when negotiations take place.

I mean think about it, Gov't is the last entity to drive a hard bargain and get a favorable deal for the tax payer.

I don't support weak individuals who cannot look out for their own best interests and require a group to do so when it comes to their personal employment.

The answer is, and always has been simple. Make union membership an individual CHOICE of each employee everywhere in the USA.

Anyone who is pro-choice would agree with this. Some people that are only pro-abortion do not.
