Apropos of Mayor Bloomberg’s loss of control of his unionized workers at the NYC Department of Sanitation, some of whom sabotaged efforts to plow snow during the Boxing Day blizzard, legendary GOP NYC Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia once said, “There is no Democratic or Republican way of cleaning the streets.” 

Mayor Bloomberg has taken this to heart.  Under his Administration, which is proudly non-partisan, there is no way of cleaning the streets, period. 

And Mayor LaGuardia supported private sector labor unions, while opposing public employee labor unions.  He was right.
