Why public sector unions are losing – and can’t stop it if they tried. Key quote:
This is why the Wisconsin Democratic Senators were in the minority in the first place. There is no reason for ninety percent of the population to rally for benefits that accrue to only ten percent of the workforce when they themselves are cut out of those benefits.

And the Wisconsin Republican Senators showed them exactly why that is so. [emphasis in original]
