    You really don't understand public unions and no matter how many times you claim it that doesn't make it true, taxpayers fund public unions indirectly through public union employees. That seems to be a problem here for you and others, this is about public unions not private unions.

    weekly earnings of $917, while those who were not represented by unions had median
    weekly earnings of $717.
    (See table 2.) In addition to coverage by a collective bar-
    gaining agreement, the difference reflects a variety of influences including varia-
    tions in the distributions of union members and nonunion employees by occupation, in-
    dustry, firm size, or geographic region.>

    Union Members Summary
    This means the unions were paid 25% too much.

    what you are doing is propagating a falsehood, a LIE..you are being DISHONEST, and that is a mild term for what you are doing.

    Amazing that someone who has absolutely nothing invested in the business and not a concern about getting a paycheck would be telling business what to pay their workers. that defines unions to a tee.

    Not a falsehood at all, it is a fact. You don't seem to understand the difference between a public union and a private union. We have been through this over and over and yet you are the one ignoring reality.

    and i continue to see that you are jealous of a group of people banding together to negotiate for a fair wage and benefits...why do you hate the working man/woman so much?

    perhaps i have to come out and say it straight up...YOU ARE LYING. you are correct, we have been through this over and over, and you continue to repeat the same lie, over and over, so desparate are you to paint unions in a bad light.

    The logic of unions being funded by tax payers basically means that a good number of consumer businesses are funded by tax payers as well since teachers grocery shop, buy houses, computers, cars, etc. Its an interesting logical exercise, but it can't pass the smell test for that reason.
