These unions are composed of lazy-as* morons who really are just welfare cases in disguise (want freebies, entitlements, and cushy jobs where they can be lazy all day). Look at Greece, look at Sweden... socialism just doesn't work. Unions are socialist enterprises... want ridiculous hourly wages, cadillac healthcare plans and cushy pensions... and the ability to goof off all day. Ever see these city or state construction employees.... 10 guys watching one guy work.
I used to consult some unions in their marketing materials, to my eternal regret. The guys running these outfits are by and large, just criminals in disguise representing welfare cases indisguise. Truly disgusting. Give me a Wall Street banker any day instead of these really dumb, useless unions.
I was once a union electrician in Chicago and was fed up hearing guys bitch when they made $30/hr and tired of busting my ass while others did enough to get by but made the same $ as i did. If i were a member now, i would probably have 3 guys watching me type on this post.
