In the spirit of Labor Day, we thought we would take a few minutes to interrupt the union bosses from their hotdog and hamburger grilling (or given their exorbitant $250k + salaries, more likely filet mignon and lobster) to ask them a few questions. Inquiring minds in Pennsylvania want to know!
Speaking of your ridiculous salaries, how do you sleep at night knowing that you are making over $100 or more per hour on the backs of those you supposedly represent which is 3-4 times what many of them make. If you think they deserve so much more money, why don’t you reduce what you take from them and allow them to keep more of it in their pockets?
While we’re on the subject of helping your workers, why not help them earn higher wages? Since Oklahoma and Indiana passed Right to Work legislation, both employment numbers and individual wages have gone up. You’re always worried about increasing working wages, here’s a GREAT way to do it!
Why are you so afraid to give your members a choice? If the benefits you provide them are as wonderful as you claim they are, then why would any of them choose NOT to be a member of your union? Surely they’d be happy to continue their membership.
Also, since you seem to be SO concerned about representation, why is it you don’t seem to care about the fact that Pennsylvania continues to LOSE representation every 10 years in Congress because of a dwindling population? Where are the people going? According to this study:
http://mediatrackers.org/national/2013/08/21/americans-vote-with-their-feet-flee-forced-unionism-states skilled workers and others are moving to states where they have more freedom, especially the freedom to choose whether or not to join a union!
Anyway, we’ll let you get back to your fancy barbecue. By the way, it’s now been almost a year since we challenged you to sit down with us for a debate. In that year you’ve had time to harass, stalk, photograph children, assault, intimidate, impede business, and embarrass yourselves in the state capitol, but we haven’t heard from you. We’re waiting!
For those waiting with us, you can visit http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/parighttowork/ to lend your voice for better wages, more freedom, and better representation for the workers of PA. Then join us September 24 at the PA Capitol when we deliver the petitions (for more information visit http://employeefreedomrally.weebly.com/index.html). You can always learn more about the REAL organization fighting for the workers of Pennsylvania at www.parighttowork.org.
