States are swimming in red ink, and politicians across the spectrum are putting public services on the chopping block, making teachers, bus drivers, and librarians out to be Public Enemy No. 1. This workshop will explain how state and local budgets got to be such a mess, why politicians are slashing and burning instead of reversing a generation of tax cuts, and why no one is talking about the elephant in the federal budget—military spending. We’ll examine what public sector unions need to do to get out of this bind.
