    Yet another reason why the government shouldn't have unions. Tax payers and citizens shouldn't have to go through a union to get a government job. Unfair advantage # whatever. Another unfair advantage is the money the union has to play with to get their salaries and benefits. In a private sector union workers are sitting across the table from owners and asking them to give them more of the profits from the business in wages and benefits. In the case of the government worker and their company there is no profit. The union is asking the government to go further into debt to increase their salaries and benefits. As for the politician, they do have to answer to the tax payer at election time but the lag between the time they gave the unions what they wanted and the next election creates kind of a cushion. How many private company employees get to vote for their next boss or vote the boss they don't like out of office? The idea of government unions making campaign contributions or even actively campaigning for a given candidate is unseemly. Who is going to bail the tax payer out when these government pensions become unsustainable?

    You should talk... You are the one drinking the kool aid.

    It is unlawful for a labor union to take money from your paycheck for contributions to a federal PAC or for the federal PAC to accept such contributions without your written authorization. Recently, the Federal Election Commission has audited some well-known national union PACs to see if they had written authorizations from employees for the contributions the PACs were receiving. The results were astonishing. One national union PAC, according to the FEC audit, could not produce written authorizations for 93% of PAC contributions the FEC examined. Another national union PAC was unable to show authorizations for at least 67% of the contributions the FEC examined. This suggests a widespread problem: union PACs are making political contributions to federal candidates with employees' money taken without their written authorizations.

    you have some strange ideas about how the workplace functions when it's unionized.

    How did this happen if what you say is true?



    NEAexposed » Ohio teacher sounds off when the NEA launches attack ads against her husband

    [QUOTE]It’s no secret that teachers unions spend heavily each election season, with almost all the campaign cash flowing to left-wing candidates and liberal causes.
    And many conservative members of the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association have protested that their union’s spending is out of line with the teachers they represent, which are more evenly split politically.[/QUOTE
    ]“Imagine my chagrin when my friends and colleagues began showing me the awful attack ads against my husband which they had received in the mail,” Jade Thompson wrote in a letter to the Marietta Times newspaper. “Now imagine my dismay when I saw that those defamatory mailers were paid for by the Ohio Education Association – my teachers’ union. In effect, they are using my union dues to attack my husband! This is a new low, even for the OEA.”
