    In Wisconsin, Big Labor politicians help make right-to-work case

    Every two years, compulsory unionism’s corrupting influence on America’s political system is on display. Union officials funnel huge sums of money, estimated to be in excess of a billion dollars, into federal, state and local elections.

    This money comes straight from union treasury accounts that consist overwhelmingly of dues and fees that millions of workers are forced to fork over as a condition of employment.

    A large share of those sitting in Congress and state legislatures, and on city councils and school boards, depend upon Big Labor’s forced dues-fueled largesse to remain in office. Since they’re well aware of which side their bread is buttered on, they consistently fight with determination and zeal to perpetuate and expand union bosses’ special privilege to extract money from unwilling employees as well as voluntary union members.

    Wow, looks like union members don't have a clue as to where their dues money is going, just another example of union misleading their members.

    Do you have any thing for a less questionable source?


    In a line of decisions, the Supreme Court has addressed this issue and has concluded that compulsory union dues of non-members may not be used for political and ideological activities that are outside the scope of the unions’ collective bargaining and labor-management duties when non-members object to such use.

    Who is auditing the unions to make sure they are following the law? Where are the millions and millions of union dollars coming from if not from dues? PAC's don't have that kind of money.

    Well, before you suggest they have broke the law, you should at least have some evidence that they have. Wouldn't that be appropriate?

    Or I suppose you can just take the word of an agenda driven publication with no actual evidence. After all all claims are always true.

    I asked a question based upon logic and common sense. It has been reported that 40% of the union members vote Republican so that leaves 60% to support PAC's. Are you contending that dues aren't going to the PAC's?

    I've given you the law. Are you sugegsting the law has been broken? Evidence?

    The evidence is the number of union employees, the number that vote for Republicans, and the amount spent on elections. Yes, I believe the law is being broken but since I don't live in a union state, it doesn't affect me at all. Can explain where the money actually comes from that is being spent in Wisconsin and where the votes are coming from in Wisconsin that generates more dollars and more votes than there are people in the various precincts?
