Here are the videos of John Stossel’s documentary aired by FoxNews this past weekend. For this special, Stossel interviewed: Paul Ryan, Rob Andrews, Marc Lamont Hill, Arthur Brooks, Star Parker, Art Laffer, Donald Trump, entrepreneurs, etc.
Among other things, John Stossel explains the negative impact of unions, i.e., how the pay and benefits of the public sector unions have risen astronomically – all paid by taxpayers:
|Public pensions have unfunded liability of $1 trillion to $3.5 trillion
Federal workers take home twice pay and benefits as private workers. Local and state workers also make more.
|— Average TWU union worker makes $60K without overtime or benefits.
— 25% took 15 or more sick days. Average was 8 sick days.
— Fox average 3 sick days (same for men and women)
— No FOX employee took 15 days
