Pay Your Own Way — Unconstitutional?

Big Labor union bosses in Illinois are fuming over a proposal that would require government workers to pay more toward their retirement. In fact, according to the head of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union, such a proposal — which is commonplace in the private sector — would violate the state’s constitution.

The arrogance of Big Labor never ceases to amaze. No wonder taxpayers, including private sector union members, have turned against the greed and entitlement mentality of government unions.
