    Thousands of labor union members have marched for jobs and economic fairness in the streets of New York City, the heart of the Occupy movement. RT's Marina Portnaya has been at the scene.

    The Thursday march was organized by the New York City Central Labor Council, which called on everyone "who is frustrated and worried about the growing economic disparity in this country" to take to the streets.

    RT's Marina Portnaya reports that there some 20,000 people taking part in the march demanding accountability from their elected officials. The people are from various labor unions and include teachers and electricity workers. The event has been peaceful so far.

    Why don't unionized laborers give up some benefits then use that to finance better wages for others?

    Unions will continue to be willing dupes until their services are no longer needed by those using them...and are abolished.

    Um, well, like what benefits? Vacation days? Sick pay? Medical coverage? Specifically in what ways are they being selfish? From what I recall about Unions, those things are not transferable. I don't know for sure, but unless I am mistaken, the companies that ahndle the benefits and such are outside union resources. :dunno:
