    And I guess if a teacher goes and gets an abortion with her salary, that means tax payers fund abortion as well, right?

    you does realize the historical and current benefits unions brought about, right? you do realize unions are why we don't have child labor in this country, right? you do realize unions are resposnible for safe work environments, right?

    Not me.... I average well over that. But, 95% of Americans would be jealous and resentful if they knew all the facts.

    Unions would lose support quickly if everyone knew how much they made in relation to their own salaries.

    Are you gong to stick with this?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    doubtful. people know unions bring good wages and benefits. and were it not for unions, many non-union people wouldn't make what they do.

    Maybe it's the tax cuts to the middle class that's not working.

    They are trying to redistribute the wealth. They are like bizzaro-socialists.

    Are you saying taxpayers expect to pay the person responsible for teaching their children to be paid less than what is paid in the private sector? And your evidence of this is what exactly?
