Maine and The Case Against Public Sector Strikes
Bills circulating in the Maine legislature could allow public sector strikes. Hopefully Maine citizens will see the havoc wreaked in states where public sector strikes have occurred before considering these bills. As it is public sector unionism impinges upon the sovereignty of the government.
Adam Creapeu makes an excellent case against these bills in themainewire.com.
The state of Maine currently prevents employees who work in the public-sector from using a common instrument in the organized labor toolbox — the ability to strike. However, the law that prevents public-sector employees from going on strike could change when the legislature reconvenes to consider emergency legislation and all other bills that were carried over into the second session.
