"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.

Unions needs to support workplace rules that allow better workers to get better pay. This stuff about all the brotherhood making the same cash is BS.

Also, Obamacare has removed the need for Unions to negotiate heeath care benefits.

There are many problems with unions. just a couple: First , Unions limit the amount a union member can earn.

Second, the worst worker and the best worker make the same money.

SHARE the truth: When Hostess began to face financial woes, the company’s CEO got a 300% salary increase from $750,000 to $2,250,000. It was discovered that the former Hostess CEO tripled his salary in early 2012. Meanwhile, a number of top executives saw massive pay raises, some nearly doubling their salaries. The new CEO blamed union workers for the company’s bankruptcy filing—yet it's the workers who were the very ones who gave concessions multiple times in the past few years—valiantly fighting to save their jobs and their company. In December, a staggering $1.8 million in bonuses were awarded to executives AFTER the bankruptcy filing. In late 2012, Hostess Brands admitted to The Wall Street Journal that money taken out of workers' paychecks—intended for their retirement funds—was used for company operations instead. Hostess is one example of executives' blame-the-worker and blame-a-union game. The sad part of the story? Regular, every-day workers fall for it; hook, line and sinker

Some basic rules should be followed when leaving comments. 1. Comments should be your own opinion. Not cut and paste materials from other sources. This would normally violate the terms of service of the source. 2. Comments should only be left on one topic/story. 3. Comments should be on the topic of the the story/forum and should not be aimed at other people using the forums.

Munster likes to have the 'final word' on each topic in the pick list of the "National Forums" so that, when someone looks down the posts they see Munster, Munster, Munster, Munster, Munster, ad nasium. I'm sure that he's trying to convince SOMEONE that he is an intellectual giant when, in fact, he's an arrogant as$.

So, let's fight fire with fire!

Robert and Patricia Haynes take care of their two children, who at the ages of 30 and 34 are more like children in adult bodies. That’s because they both have cerebral palsy, and rely on their parents to feed and change them — and likely will for the rest of their lives.

The Haynes family receives monthly checks from the state of Michigan through Medicaid, allowing the parents to care for their son and daughter themselves instead of institutionalizing them. But because a Michigan law classifies Robert and Patricia as “home health care workers,” they are considered public workers and therefore automatic union members — meaning the SEIU gets a $30 cut of the family’s Medicaid subsidy as union dues.

Teamsters officials said Tuesday that they filed a petition with a federal labor agency to force an election against the Transport Workers Union to represent mechanics at American Airlines.

The Teamsters union is also seeking to represent mechanics at US Airways, who are currently represented by the machinists' union.
