Plunder!: How Public Employee Unions are Raiding Treasuries Controlling Our Lives and Bankrupting the Nation

Public employees have become the new American elite. These days, government workers not only earn more than other Americans, but they have vastly superior benefits, including pension plans that often allow them to retire as early as age 50 with 100% or more of their final year's salary. As the government gets bigger and more powerful, government officials have more uncontrolled power over the rest of us—to enrich and protect themselves at the expense of the public good. The public's servants have truly become the public's masters.

Praise for Plunder

"Government employees are supposed to work for the public-not the other way around. Unfortunately, because of the overwhelming political influence of Government unions, public employees have gained an unsustainable level of pay and benefits. Taxpayers will be saddled with higher taxes, depleted services, and unconscionable levels of debt. As Greenhut's timely book explains, the public servants have indeed become the public's masters."

Robert W. Loewen, President of the Lincoln Club of Orange County

"Greenhut has performed a great service for ordinary citizens and taxpayers with PLUNDER. With PLUNDER, Greenhut does more than his share of agitating. Except for government labor bosses and bureaucrats, we will all be better for it."

Jon Coupal, President, Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association

"The tax-eaters must pin Steve Greenhut's face to their dartboard. His latest blockbuster should end their career of abuse against the taxpayers. Cut government, and free the people. And stop the abuse!"
