It should be of concern to all Americans that public employees in our country are being treated like second class citizens by many elected officials. It’s obvious that an attack strategy was devised by the GOP leadership to be carried out initially in a number of key states. While I am sure there are exceptions, by and large most folks who work as state employees or as school teachers are dedicated, work hard and earn their pay.
It became very clear that the men who run the National Republican Party believed that making public employees a target would help the party politically in those key states and ultimately would reap benefits nationwide. Public employees were made the target of overly-harsh criticism and budget cuts in the legislative bodies controlled by Republicans. That is simply wrong and shouldn’t be tolerated.
I have some very good friends, both in government service and in the education field in Alabama, who tell me it has been very hard on them and their families over the last two years. Many are now trying to find another way to make a living and feed their families. Some are even considering a move to another state. I can certainly understand how they feel. It’s time for the GOP to get off the backs of public employees and support them in their work.
