I heard it right here on The Takeaway on National Commie Radio a while back. Robert Pollin, an econ prof at UMass Amherst said that public employees in America are paid 4% less (including benefits!) than private employees at the same age and ed level.
I never knew. I feel terrible. We simply must free these workers from the oppression of these working conditions. Let them go to find wealth and happiness in the "private sector".
Let my people go.
