Their contracts, for one.
Seriously, though - these are not government decision-makers; they aren't a bunch of WI state legislators on strike!

When you are on the taxpayers dime, you shouldn't have any special legal protections bestowed upon you. Let the individuals decide. Just as in an open market place. If a store decides to pay its employee more, and therefore prices increase, you can chose not to shop there anymore. Choice.

You both are tools of billionaire David Koch who is trying to destroy the current government so his industry can continue to rape the earth and create a slave state. Do some research and you will soon find out the money greasing the wheels of the Tea Party comes from Koch Industries.
Wake up people and stop being used by greedy sick rich white men.
