Are public employees being unfairly targeted?

Are public sector employees – state and local government workers and teachers – being unfairly painted as over compensated? With whom do you sympathize in the situation in Wisconsin, where the governor wants state workers to lose their rights to negotiate for benefits?
In Maine, is it time for those paid on the public dime to accept benefits
packages more in line with the private sector? Should pay also be cut? Or are people like Gov. LePage unfairly blaming these employees for the budget shortfalls of recent years?
