Not Accountable: Rethinking the Constitutionality of Public Employee Unions

By Philip K. Howard - Rating: 7/10

Public sector unions stink and cause all sorts of problems. This book points out just about every reason why this is the case. They break state and local budgets, hinder innovation in education and public service, and inevitably shape public policy in the self-interest of their members and not the voting public at large. The book’s final argument is that they represent an unelected, private body who has been given the reins of governance. This was not exactly the most entertaining read but its arguments are concise and to-the-point.
