    That's pretty impressive pay. No wonder they care so much about the power they can wield.


    on a side note, I got a laugh out of all the Italian and Irish names. Only Jones as the exception

    Yup. Takes real smarts to run the unions.

    Wonder if the dues paying members have any idea what the heads of those unions are pulling in every year??

    Compared to CEO salaries, you mean?

    The Pay at the Top - The New York Times

    Viacom Philippe P. Dauman $84,000,000

    Occidental Petroleum Ray R. Irani $76,000,000

    Oracle Lawrence J. Ellison $70.1 million.

    I'm sure they do. And I'm sure they look at the fact they are the only workers in this country still making good money and say, "Job well done!"

    One thing left off here (same with CEO's) - is their salary is a small part of the total package.
    Like CEO's it is not uncommon to receive full compensation for the rest of their lives after leaving office in as little as 10 years.

    No comparison

    CEO's earn a portion of his salary for building a company that returns wealth to its employees and shareholders, in the millions

    What does the high salary of union bosses do
    except show their hypocrisy

    Perhaps the Irish are just better at making real money
    than skimming off the top of union fees
