"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.

BERIGHT or they get physically assaulted or threatened as the NLRB found that the IAM was guilty of, not to mention trying to get people fired.

Why pick on 13%? Because the unions legally shake down their membership for dues money spent on elections and not on the welfare of their members. Workers who speak out about the shake down get shunned by their “brotherhood”.

Yeah you know who ! Why pick on 13% of the workforce ? Republinutsz have had a hard one for organized labor since its conception because of their wealthy benefactors !

"Abby , sometimes there are necessary evils when the deck is stacked against you !" sounds rather anarchist to me. the unions in the instance i would have cited violated laws. those silly little things stacked against them was "The Law". that is one of the reasons i say that organized unions have lost their way. i fully understand and respect your postion with Unions. but the fact is...they need to clean-up their image...but like many political groups and organizations...much less oursleves.

Now that is NOT ME saying it, that is the NLRB which is usually pretty left wing, SANCTIONING the IAM for very bad illegal behavior

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) sanctioned the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers District 70, Local 839, an AFL-CIO affiliate, (IAM), for using intimidation tactics against dissidents. The board's regional director concluded the union had used threats of physical abuse and had attempted to get non-members fired from Spirit Aerosystems.

Physical abuse and intimidation??? Trying to get people fired???? Lets all sing LOOK FOR THE UNION LABEL...........

OWO..it must take an exceptionally strong mind to turn the blind eye against the actions by your unions like you have.

They havent lost their way , they have been successfully demonized by the right in their usual style ! Thats why I dont pay much mind to those whose minds are weak enough to be manipulated like that !

i think Walker supports enriching all through earnest effort. the same effort exerted by skilled tradesmen and tradeswomen whom the union(s) claim to represent.
