For several state jobs it is already illegal to strike, but for good reason (prisons, vital services). That said, the replacement with 22 year olds argument Sequoia makes isn't valid either, because there simply isn't the labor pool here to make that possible, nor is state pay enough to attract anyone into the area.
Umm... bureaucrats are the state workers, not the politicians. I know everybody loves to use us as their scapegoats, but bureaucracy is just the personnel part of the implementation of government. It isn't evil, and only becomes a problem if it's mismanaged and grows inefficient. Cut inefficiency, cut waste, but don't cut bureaucracy just because you've been lied to about what the term means. In this case you'd probably be firing yourself.
