"Union fat-cats...myth or reality?"

So...you think labor unions are run by cigar chomping "Union Fat Cats", who receive outrageous salaries and benefits, while living a life of luxury comparable to Saudi Arabian Princes, lording their unrestrained power over the entire United States of America... all on the backs of the union-enslaved workers they represent. Here's your chance to prove it.

Didn't mean everyone. Some of them are. my bad. Was excited. Welfare saved me as a kids so I know it is a temporary bridge until one can get on their own 2 feet but some want it as a way of life.

That is a Commentary by -

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) is a Washington, D.C.-based think tank that analyzes the impacts of budget policies and promotes effective approaches to reducing poverty. It was founded in 1981, and is based in Washington, D.C. The Center describes itself as a "policy organization...working at the federal and state levels on fiscal policy and public programs that affect low- and moderate-income families and individuals".[1] CBPP is organized as a 501(c) nonprofit. Though it describes itself as non-partisan,[2] journalists have characterized it as liberal or left of center.

I look forward to seeing the truth but I'm afraid that you'll get very little of it there !Another biased rightwing crap factory ! But that gives some insight as to your current state of mind ! If you spend all day looking at that garbage it will rot your mind and create a hostility toward the president or whomever they choose to vilify that day !!You'd be better off watching cartoons or something !

Looking for a good paying job? Well, look no further. No, really, stop looking. In 35 states, welfare benefits pay more than a minimum wage job, according to a new study by the libertarian Cato Institute, and in 13 states welfare pays more than $15 per hour. “One of the single best ways to climb out of poverty is taking a job, but as long as welfare provides a better standard of living than an entry-level job, recipients will continue to choose it over work,” said Michael Tanner, senior policy analyst and co-author of the study. The study is an updated version of one Tanner put out in 1995 that estimated the full value of welfare benefits packages across the states. The 1995 study found that such tax-free welfare benefits greatly exceeded the poverty level and “their dollar value was greater than the amount of take-home income a worker would receive from an entry-level job.” dailycaller

"Did you ask yourself why they picked $15/Hr?"

Probably when one takes into consideration of inflation and other cost of living increases, that would be just about right.

Posted 55 days ago.

thegreek

Did you ask yourself why they picked $15/Hr ???? Because it has been calculated that is equivelent to what one can receive by STAYING HOME ON WELFARE in like 33 states.... Which by the way - is EXACTLY WHAT MITT ROMNEY SAID AND ALL THE DEMS CRUCIFIED HIM !!! The libs have really opened up a can of worms by encouraging them to depend on the gov programs and big bro will provide !!! There is no easy way outta this mess created by vote buying politicians !!! Guess Barry gets the blame and can suffer for this mistake !!!

If one believes that the min wage should be increased, then yes...it could be said they are being taken advantage of. Especially in an economy that isn't exactly ripe with well paying jobs.

Take advantage of? I have never seen a McDonald employee, Wal-Mart Employee or even a Burger King employee force to work through the bag door by gunpoint.

I have been also told by reliable sources that you actually have to apply for jobs at these places and, and, and they tell you upfront how much you make before you start!! Can you believe that?

The way it is being reported it sounds like they don't know this going in.

Let's keep in mind that min. wage has not kept up with inflation. So while the average Mcworker doesn't deserve an increase to $15, they probably should be getting at least a few dollars more than they do get.

Can you say that even at that rate they still cant live on their own !
