I am a semi-retired executive living in Peoria, which is located in the central part of the corrupt State of Illinois. Our key employer here is Caterpillar. Cat showed the Unions how things should really be run in the 1990’s. Make outrageous demands in your negotiations, and Cat said screw you - we’ll just run the plant with office workers until you come back to reality. We will also hire non union workers to replace those on strike. Many years later, CAT is extremely successful, the union still exists, but no longer dictates to the Company. You can bet this will never happen to the public sector unions
