"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.

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”.

"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.

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

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.

i feel certain that the Feds would be called in.

well that's comforting...

OWO...should that occur, i feel certain that the Feds would be called in. i would hope that the local politicians and law enforcement understand that their actions are being scrutinized 24/7 and act accordingly.

OWO...the reps can always press charges if it is indeed a crime for a homeowner to request someone to leave at gun point. if it is a crime then let the courts decide. don't you agree?

Posted 298 days ago.

absolem

OWO... i mentioned the story about the reps being told at gunpoint to leave the homeowners property. it was the homeowners property...they have the right within the law to determine who can enter their property and moreso when it is time for visitors, invited or not, to leave. i think part truth and part excuse for why there is not enough support at this time for the union.

we will see. i hope they are content with their decision.

OWO...the union realized they did not have the votes and decided it wa time to call in the big guns. unfortuantely without the strong arm tactics of the NLRB...their hope is Pfft....gone. like it never happened.
