Zero comments? Is it the chill in the air, or is the electronic version of the article just too hard to find. This publication is not alone. It is a form of censorship whether deliberate or by bad interface.
Anyway, from a libertarian's perspective, there is going to be a massive breakup of union cohesion. The Building and Construction Trades Council members are close to independent entrepreneurs. Every hammer handler wants in on the building game. And low paid working union members in the service industry, who must practically fend for themselves, chaff at the sweet packages public union employees are getting.
Then, when we get to union driven stupid projects like Gov. Brown's peripheral pipes and super train, projects dead in the water by the citizens account, we are going to have a fallout between the common citizen who pays the taxes and those who spend the citizens' money by needless bond issues and get the votes on the promise of jobs. (Can't divert water if you ain't got it, and Tesler and Google will get us to LA in self driving rentals down I-5 where we at least have a car when we get there.)
Techies are going to make up a powerful group in SF and really don't give a damn about unions, except when it gets to parting with their hard earned or easy made dollars.
