    Race To The Bottom: Anti-Union Organization Says Drag Public Employees Down - By Jordan Barab, Confined Space
    One only hopes that reason will prevail and people will compare what unionized public employees have, compare it to their increasingly Wal-Martized jobs, and decide that being a member of a union sounds like a pretty good deal. The question is, do we let the exploited and de-unionized private sector drag down the heavily unionized public sector, along with its decent pay and benefits, or do we let the public sector set an example for what the rest of non-union America can achieve?

    A race to the bottom, or a fight to the top?
