A Story of Labor Unions in the US

The former president of California's biggest union local was sentenced Monday to 33 months in federal prison for stealing from his low-income members to finance an expensive lifestyle that included being married to two women at the same time.
This is a widespread epidemic.  Study shows that more than 400 union officials in the US made over $250,000 each in 2012.  A labor union is nothing more than a scheme to scam gullible low-salary employees.  Volkswagen employees in Tennessee filed a complaint claiming that they only joined their union because of its misleading tactics.  After all, when people can make a choice, they would not choose to fund the lavish lifestyles of union employees.  Which is why unions were so furious with Gov. Scott Walker's (R. Wisconsin) labor law reform.  Fortunately, a federal court just backed his reforms.  One can see how eager people are to be freed from the malevolent clutches of unions as the teachers union in Kenosha, Wisconsin just decertified.
