"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.

Where in the world did the "The median weekly income for union workers was $943 in 2012, compared with $742 for nonunion workers" come from?

Unions do compete in the real world.There are strengths and weaknesses in all things.Some choose to subsist on corn, wine,and oil longer than others.

The issue of voter fraud has arisen as a hot-button issue over the past few years, and while the debate is frequently partisan, people on both sides of the aisle have been found guilty of the crime. 

While these actions may call into question the integrity of the vote, voter ID laws, the most frequently proposed measure to combat fraud, wouldn't have done anything to prevent them. All said, voter fraud is still incredibly rare, with in- person violations being one of the least common crimes. A recent nationwide analysis of 2,068 alleged election-fraud cases since 2000 found only 10 instances of in-person fraud.

Voter 'fraud',is a fun (non)issue.Early voting is an issue, but the right in ohio has finally reduced that by 2-3 weeks.What is your opinion of Jennifer's hair color and style,beright ?

It would seem that you are quite proud of your 'elected by peers' status,tired.And considering they are,at least, "smarter than a toad",that is worth sharing.Thanks.

Of course, we have JOB stewards, who are appointed by the business agent.

Just a little nugget to consider, ....I think the union that represents grocery store workers elect their shop stewards.

Shop stewards in the United States are usually selected democratically by the members of the bargaining unit, but may sometimes be appointed by senior union leadership. 

Not sure about Canada...
