Extension of the National Labor Relations Act to Public Sector Employment: Radical Change or Capstone to Revolution?

Dr. Edwin Vieira discusses the extension of the National Labor Relations Act to public sector employment in state and local government. He believes, it "will exacerbate the deleterious effects of compulsory public sector unionism and collective bargaining on the rights of individual non-union employees, the ability of public officials and administrators to exercise discretion in the public interest, and the right to the general public to representative government. That such an extension is seriously considered may indicate that public employee unions are close to achieving political dominance over all other groups in American society."
