    So you're saying they only care about the money and have no moral guidelines?
    That doesnt say much for union workers now does it.

    If it were me and they said I had to watch barry speak? I'd say,I'll see you guys on Monday.

    They got paid to do nothing and would still get overtime pay later in the week, the rest got the day off. Seems your whine has no reason other than Trump.

    I cant see myself working in a union shop in the first place.
    I've seen how they roll and it's pathetic.

    Those that decided to sit out the event would have an excused absence,

    while those that didn’t go to hear the president are being paid the regular rate,


    While I can't see the actual article because I refuse to turn off my adblocker, nor will I subscribe to sites like this...…..those 2 statements from the OP tells me otherwise. And most companies do pay for 'excused absences' and as I said......they weren't forced because those that didn't go weren't fired.

    Both the article headline and the OP are misleading...….as it says they didn't get paid if they didn't go, but that's not true either, now is it?

    I was wondering why they looked so unhappy.

    Usually the people behind Trump are wildly cheering and hanging on to every word with that look that fanatics give to fake prophets.

    So if a worker doesn't like how the union is run they should withdraw their membership in the union.
