I am an unwilling member of the union Workers United, a Rochester NY local affiliated with the SEIU crime syndicate. Like many if not most of the remaining private sector union members, I am compelled to be a union member and to pay union dues to keep my job. Under the "leadership" of Ron Piccone, a typically politics-corrupted union hack who slid into the presidency of the union by a devious maneuver that averted both a debate and a real vote by the members on whether we really wanted the former lock-step Democrat Political Director as our president. Under the dubious leadership of this leftist half-wit the union of course is supporting nearly all if not absolutely all Democrats this fall -- meaning that they are supporting the party that keeps raising taxes and driving American companies and American jobs overseas. How this benefits the American worker I am unable to discern.
You would expect a company with this kind of inspired leadership to do something stupid for Labor Day, and at this Workers United did not disappoint. This year they decided to links arms with the "99%" in the cause of ... would be ungenerous of me to say in the cause of the right to exhibit one's greed and stupidity publicly? After all, how could a labor union not benefit from linking arms with the PDL (the Public Defecation League)?
I don't know if the Occupiers marched ("shambled" were perhaps the better word) in the parade with Workers United this year. If so, pity the poor souls who were caught downwind of that odorous union.
