Republicans in Florida are so obsessed with privatization – they are now privatizing their union-busting efforts. The City of Winter Park – just hired a firm of right-wing political consultants to fight 150 city workers who are trying to form a union.

The consulting firm has ties to far right-wing organizations like the Ayn Rand Institute and the Federalist Society – and routinely boasts on their website that the “labor movement is dead” and that third world sweatshops are good things. The motive here is pretty clear – the city is hiring anti-union thugs to screw their public workers.

At least when Scott Walker was doing it in Wisconsin – he was doing it himself – and not giving piles of money to some sketchy right-wing yahoos who claim they can bust unions.
