Happy Labor Day to you as well . . .
Unfortunately, Unions have become the bloated bureaucracies they originally formed to protect workers against . . . it's more about the dues than the people.

I'm a "conservative right-winger" and a proud union member as well. I purchase American-made vehicles from American-owned companies. I buy as much American-made clothing as I can readily find.
I see that 80+% of Californians buy IMPORTED vehicles... If someone is going to be pro-union, then they ought to LIVE IT! Now that Americans are setting the standards in quality AND value, there is no excuse for buying imports from non-union manufacturers.

Happy Labor Day back to you!
Got to love unions, especially when they steal from taxpayers! I do have to admit our country would not be where it is today without them.
Uni on leader draws lucrative pension perk based on false information
Every month, Thomas Villanova gets a $9,000 reminder of how lucrative it can be to serve as a union leader in Chicago.
The sum is part of a city pension that comes on top of the $198,000 annual salary he is paid to represent the interests of thousands of city workers.
Yup, I pay $44 a month for what? Some fat arse to suck up a portion of my pay so I can trade my labor and experience next to a guy who bullcrapped his way in? We have so many workers in our shop with little to no education in the field and they bullcrap their way in and then the union protects them and when I get pissed off because they feck up all the time and I have to fix it, I am wrong and get fired? Makes sense to me!!! I have been with the comapny 22 years, have gone out of my way to promote and help the company grow, I have done more for the company than all the other "employees" combined, yet I get fired because I ask, the union steward who is fed up as well, if it would be wrong to "escort" Joe Blow off the property and give him a little education on how things are done. Yea, unions are great for socialism and comunism, but not for America. If gutless wonders would stand up for themselves we wouldn't need unions. Know history people. If the entire popualtion came together and said F-U to these corporations, and walked out, what would the corps do? Just have to man up, no union needed and walk out together, individually yet together. THAT is solidarity, not a union.

Unions aren't as good as they sound.
My fiancee's union decided that a raise lower than inflation would be good, also many things got clawed back --> the contract the idiots at work decided to vote for this agreement. Can't save the stupid. Unions are there to try and get you to sell out for as little as possible while the company pays off the union heads. They are a total rip most of the time.
