William Jones, a self-defined labor historian at the University of Wisconsin-Madison wonders “how will municipalities recruit teachers, firefighters and trash collectors if the pensions aren’t secure”.
Is he really serious?
I suggest Jones is delusional. Either that, or Jones is a historian who does not understand history – recent history.
If there was open bidding right now instead of collective theft (commonly called collective bargaining), people would line up for miles for public service jobs at half the pay even if there were no benefits.
