Open Thread: Heritage and Reason Team Up to Debunk Union Falsehoods

The two think tanks, leaders in the conservative and libertarian movements, produced a short video recently examining some of the claims made by pro-union demonstrators and other public employee union backers. Among the claims they take on: public sector workers don't make significantly more than their private sector counterparts, collective bargianing is "not about money," and attempts to rein in public employee unions are simply "union busting" measures.

Check out the video below the break.

Thoughts on the video, the claims made in it, or the debate generally?
