George Will on Bush Anti-Labor Agenda

George Will has a column where he's blunt about Bush's plan to hurt labor in his second term. Tops on the agenda is slashing pay for government workers through privatization:

Bush is pressing to put hundreds of thousands of federal jobs up for competition with the private sector. Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform says: "The people who cut the Pentagon lawn are government employees. Why?" People listed in the phone book will do it cheaper. How many of the 15 million state and local government jobs could be privatized, with how many billions of dollars in savings?
It's nice to see Will laying out GOP views on the economy: the lower the wages the better.
