Earl, lots of jobs out there are crappy, and if you pay someone enough, they'll do the job. I have no issue with that. It's called the free market. My issue is and always has been about pensions. They're unsustainable, and unions have no solution other than funnel contributions to politicians who will kick the can down the road. California is going out of business partly due to this problem.

Pensions are part of the pay and benefits that attract the best candidates for the jobs. That's part of the free market you're talking about. Take pensions away and you're on the road to making some of the most important jobs in our society "crappy" by your standards--and thereby attracting less than the best candidates. After all, if they could work for the same pay and benefits as someone who sits around in an air conditioned office all day with much less stress, why would they volunteer to put their lives on the line on a daily basis, dealing with other people's crap? The answer is the pay and benefits--pensions included.

Earl, you're not even close to being convincing. If someone doubled my salary and dropped my health insurance and 401K matching, It wouldnt make my job more crappy and attract lesser candidates. It's no different for any line of work. The pensions are not sustainable. The double dipping by govt workers is not sustainable. I realize you're a schill for unions, but you need to work in the private sector for a little while and realize it's not all that different. Cops put the lives on the lines, but so do airline pilots, high rise window washers, and crab fishermen. Lots of jobs have risk, and pensions are not the only way to attract good candidates. Think for yourself for once instead of reading from the union script.
