|People to be feared? Union members.|
Most union workers do not make a bundle. They make a middle class wage. A few game the system, so we should demonize them all? We now have robber barons and union busters like David Koch who makes $3 million an hour based on a 40 hour work week. Or in a less liberal benefit estimate $1.8 million every hour. Do I hear any of you complaining about that? The more money they make, the less people are employed by them. They help their own pockets at workers expense. You are fixed on these middle class people who are mostly making about $40,000 a year. Try and bring up a family on $40 to $60 a year. Yes some of the union workers in Miami Dade County make over $100,000. But you are concentrating on the wrong target. That is a small minority.
The Kochs are after unions and the minimum wage and you are falling for their Welfare Queen argument. You are being diverted by slick campaigns trying to make you hate unions. Unions are made up of people like you and me, your neighbors. You will never be a Koch brother so why are you supporting their agenda of "evil greedy unions". Yes, John Rivera is a bastard but unions need fighters because of all the stupidity you all believe. He is tough and a negotiator should be. I would want him watching my back. Anyway, you go on and believe the man making millions every hour and hate your neighbor for having a steady union job or your other neighbor asking for a higher minimum wage....a chance at a middle class life.
I was a member of the AFL-CIO. I made very little. Last word: Stop hating your fellow man. Hate the people assuming you are so naive they are trying to manipulate you. Hate them for thinking you are so stupid you would argue against your own interest: Our last chance to have and grow a middle class that is now having their jobs shipped overseas. As I said before, union bashers are not welcome on this blog. Write to the Koch brothers and bash unions to them or go watch Norma Rae. I am ashamed of Carlos Gimenez's treatment of his staff belonging to unions. Fiscal conservative doesn't mean you choose the Koch Brothers over your own staff.
