Cuomo needs Wisconsin-like union relief policy or his 2% tax cap will fail
It is a myth that public service unions are the only way to build a middle class. What about IBM, ToyotaUSA, and our local banks? They have middle class employees without unions. Public service unions, forced union dues, union contributions to local politicians and finally unions negotiating with these same local politicians for higher and more benefits produces an unsustainable tax burden that is destoying the school districts and municipalities in NY State and all across our country. Governor Walker's position on public service unions may be our only way out of this unsustainable tax nightmare. If Governor Cuomo does not come up with a similar mandate and union relief policy as Wisconsin's Governor Walker, Cuomo's 2% property tax cap policy and NY State's future is doomed to failure.
