I do not have five thumbs, but if I did, it would be all thumbs up for Plunder! How Public Employee Unions are Raiding Treasuries, Controlling Our Lives and Bankrupting the Nation by Steven Greenhut.
Plunder! takes a look at the perverse incentives that bring together corrupt politicians and public unions to rape taxpayers.
From the ever-growing $100,000 pension club, to the realities of unbelievable pay and benefits, to dispelling myths propagated by the unions, to public union scare tactics, overtime abuse, and pensions far beyond the taxpayer's ability to pay, Steven Greenhut covers it all, in painful detail.
I say, "painful" because Plunder! is meticulously researched, extremely well documented, and after reading the book you will see how public unions are robbing ordinary taxpayers, including you, unless of course you are part of the union mob.
Plunder! is a book you need to read, because until you do, you cannot possibly fathom how you are being played for suckers by greedy unions and politicians in bed with those unions.
Greenhut's conclusion is that "It's Time For More Than Outrage".
I certainly agree, and that is why it is critical to back candidates willing to stand up for pension and pay reform.
Please do yourself a favor and order a copy of Plunder! today, so you know exactly what is going on and why, how public unions are bankrupting the nation, and what you can do to help.
