What do you think of these union presidents increase in salaries while their base lose their jobs?
As a group, the top 25 union bosses saw their pay rise on average by 88.2 percent between 2000 and 2011. By contrast, compensation for corporate CEOs during that period decreased by 37.7 percent or 44.5 percent, depending upon whether stock options are included. The highest increase was Michael Sullivan President of the Sheet Metal Workers Union with a big 341% increase. It gets worse, read this entire article from the Washington Examiner http://washingtonexaminer.com/top-union-chiefs-compensation-has-skyrocketed-since-2000/article/2505126?utm_source=Washington%20Examiner:%20Watchdog%20-%2008/17/2012&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Washington%20Examiner:%20Watchdog%20Newsletter#disqus_threaddisqus_thread Are they in it for the workers, or are they in it for themselves? @ avail_skillz No. I am not OK with that either .

The union bosses have ALWAYS been in it for themselves. They feed the workers the union bullshit story about being brothers and all that crap and steal them blind. A union boss is nothing more than a leach sucking blood from it's host.
