State employees should have the same collective bargaining rights as Federal employees

We think state employees should have the same collective bargaining rights as Federal employees.

They have none for Wages or Benefits.

Public-Employee Unions: Facts, Figures, Some History

[W]hile less than 8 percent of private workers are covered by union contracts, union penetration in the public sector is 40 percent (and about 50 percent in Wisconsin).
