"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.

Better wages. The median weekly income of full-time wage and salary workers who were union members in 2010 was $917, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. For nonunion workers, it was $717.

More access to benefits. Some 93 percent of unionized workers were entitled to medical benefits compared to 69 percent of their nonunion peers, according to the National Compensation Survey published last year by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The survey represented about 101 million private industry workers and 19 million state and local government employees.

Tiredofit said- "If the worker actually supported the candidates, they would contribute freely themselves." If they didn't support the candidate, their workplace protections disappear. SB5 in ohio was a wonderful reminder of that.

Michelle Rhee is a lightning rod, she grounds those that flow with her agenda, and attacts attention by her postions on school reform, standardized testing does not tell how well a teacher is performing, public schools take in all students, emotional, learning disabled,etc. all 5 of my kids do not process information the same,so learn different things at differing rates, only 1 excels a the OGT. does that make her teachers the best , no. Ms. Rhee does not want to consider environment in the educational process either, and with her one time position in D.C. schools, that should be something she wants to address. As for cyberbullying, I also express a differing view, do I feel bullied on this site, or feel that I bully on this site. No, never was one to be intimidated. And admit your style of debate is not aGGRESSIVE.

Wonder why the conservative stranglehold on the Republican party has cost them the popular vote in 5 of the last 6 presidential elections, and got them actually less votes for the house than the Democrats got in 2012, well look no further.

Extend the protection of the Federal minimum wage laws to as many more workers as is possible and practicable;

Continue to fight for the elimination of discrimination in employment because of race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry or sex;

Provide assistance to improve the economic conditions of areas faced with persistent and substantial unemployment;

Revise and improve the Taft-Hartley Act so as to protect more effectively the rights of labor unions, management, the individual worker, and the public.

The protection of the right of workers to organize into unions and to bargain collectively is the firm and permanent policy of the Eisenhower Administration.

A school district is attempting to force teachers to pay union dues for the next 10 years, despite being located in Michigan, which is now a right-to-work state that specifically prohibits mandatory unionization.

Michigan became the 24th right-to-work state in December. But the law doesn’t take effect until March 28 — giving unions time to grandfather in their contracts if they can get them approved before the deadline. As part of this effort, the Taylor School District approved an entirely separate “union security agreement” that will force teachers to keep paying the union until 2023. But three Taylor teachers who want to leave the union said enough is enough. “I believe it is unfair of the union to have a security clause that requires me to be a member for 10 years,” said Rebecca Metz, a Taylor teacher.

A lawyer representing the three teachers framed the issue as a clear case of a union and a school district attempting to thwart the will of the legislature.

The facts are plain and simple, under the current federal law no worker can be forced to join a union or pay dues for political purposes: Why is it that the Unions want to eliminate secret ballots when workers vote to be unionized?
