    In the 1930’s and 1940’s there was a need for the unions. Since the late 1950’s the unions have become the cornerstone of corruption and greed. The state of CT becomes a prime example of this. Being the largest employer in the state, the unions are working diligently to bankrupt the state while the top brass lines their pockets at everyone’s expense. Until the voters of the state wake up to this simple and undeniable fact, the state will continue slipping into the financial abyss it is headed into. Remember, We the People are responsible for removing from office, useless, and self serving leaders, the fault lies no where else.
