They are working under a union contract but are refusing to pay the union dues/fees that the other members are paying. That is theft, plain and simple.
If you want to put a nice spin on it, then they are not paying their share -- same thing as failing to kick in when a group of guys have lunch together at a restaurant... the guy that can't find his wallet when the waiter shows up with the bill is a free-loader (and I've seen a few in my time).
and its fun watching a far leftist talk about not paying one's fair share. that is the entire goal of socialism isn't it. I mean I pay tons of taxes and people like me are the reason why many freeloaders have police protection, fire protection etc
but calling it theft is really silly. if Union dues are the reason why EVERY worker in an agency shop has better wages, then the Union members have received some benefit for their dues. True, others might benefit as well but isn't this the same as what happens with taxpayers and non taxpayers?
