GOP again proves its anti-working-class bias

It should come as a surprise to absolutely no one that the six Republican members of the City Council again voted to deprive city employees of the right to bargain collectively. After all, they are simply doing what Republicans do best – attacking working-class men and women.

If there is any blame to be assigned for this reprehensible act by the Republicans on the council, it should be assigned to the working-class men and women who voted for those Republican council members. I would even guess that many of the city employees who now have their financial livelihoods threatened probably vote for Republican candidates in city, state and federal elections.

This anti-union piece of legislation will certainly live in infamy in the history of Fort Wayne. Hopefully, there is an important lesson to be found – unless you are very wealthy, for example, an oncologist – you are voting against your own interests if you persist in voting for Republicans.
