Paying Extra for Sobriety: Why Massachusetts Needs a Management Rights Law

( – promoted by Rob “EaBo Clipper” Eno)

I have proposed a management rights law for Massachusetts state and local governments:…  We already have one of limited scope, enacted when the MBTA was nearly bankrupted by unsustainable economics and handcuffed management. The MBTA law was championed by none other than acclaimed union basher Barney Frank. So it’s not an attack on workers–instead, it’s an opportunity to get public sector management into the position of actually managing. And its time has come to expand to all state and local government. Or we can just get used to the idea of paying extra for attributes that any private sector employee would know is presumed.
