SEIU may be linked to ultimatum on withholding stimulus funds. California officials say the union may have influenced a federal requirement that a pay cut be reversed for home healthcare workers.California's verging on bankruptcy. As California goes, so goes the nation?
Meanwhile, Illinois is in a budget hole as well, and our state Treasurer, instead of minding his own business, is throwing his weight around on behalf of his SEIU buddies. You know what SEIU--it's not your business, it's not your money, and if the company needs to sell their assets that will help the bank pay back taxpayers.
If people lose their jobs it's too bad, but better to just give them cash directly than to keep a money-losing business going, throwing good money after bad.
