NAME 1 COMPANY THAT UNIONS STARTED WITH THERE OWN MONEY !!!ANSWER IS O !!
Un ion members that should think about that ! fire all the fat boss.s making $250,000++++car meal tickets free vacation for the whole families ........your union guys need to step up with some brains !
If union leadership really had members interest first, they would be buying the company and have complete control over all wages and benefits. Since leaders do not make this approach to taking care of their members, members welfare is way down their list. Think about it.
At the present, common stock holders the owners of the company are being ripped off. They get no dividends while labor gets big salaries and bonuses and mgt gets atrocious benefits from company profits. Mgt gets theirs first because of the tight relationship between them and the B of D's. It is also time for stock holders to wake up.
Unions don't start companies, they keep them running, they make sure that employees get every penny they are entitled to. They ensure that employers don't enslave them. Oh, and yes, they are well paid for their efforts and results.
