Why Public Sector Unions Are Inherently Corrupt

When politicians negotiate the pay and benefits of union members with union officials, who then turn around and contribute to the politicians’ campaigns, the inevitable result is corruption.

Franklin Roosevelt opposed collective bargaining by government sector employees. I disagree with Roosevelt on many issues, but this one, I think he got right.
