Isn’t it ironic: High-priced teachers union boss rails against right-to-work Wisconsin
By M.D. Kittle / March 9, 2015 / 28 Comments

MADISON, Wis. — Two things were inevitable Monday at the conclusion of the Badger State’s right-to-work battle: Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill that most Republicans liked and all Democrats hated, making Wisconsin the 25th right-to-work state, and big labor bosses fired off a string of vitriolic and ironic media releases about how the Republican governor sold middle-income workers.

“Scott Walker fails the test of common decency and common sense,” Rhonda “Randi” Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, bitterly proclaimed in a prepared statement released Monday just minutes after Walker signed the legislation.

“If you want good jobs, then you also must stand up for the workers who hold them. If you want a strong middle class, then you can’t take out the unions that built them. If you want higher wages, then workers need a voice,” Weingarten wrote.

GIMME: American Federation of Teachers boss Randi Weingarten criticized Gov. Scott Walker Monday for signing right-to-work legislation into law. The high-priced labor boss worries what will happen to Wisconsin’s ‘middle class.’

If you want a good job with higher wages, perhaps your best bet would be to get a job as boss of one of the nation’s largest public-sector unions.

Weingarten pulled down $557,875 in total compensation in 2014, including $375,174 in straight salary, according to the latest U.S. Department of Labor report. The total includes more than $50,000 in “allowances disbursed,” and $105,000-plus for “official business.”

“Randi Weingarten spends more time worrying about public policy issues and supporting radical left-wing groups, and very little time seeing to it that the education levels of kids who are being taught by her members know how to read and write,” said Rick Berman, executive director for theCenter for Union Facts, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that “fights for transparency and accountability in America’s labor movement,” according to its website.

“We have fallen academically behind so many small countries that most people can’t even find on a map, and she is continually looking the other way and acting like an old-school labor thug without regard to the academic deficits kids have in schools today,” Berman said.

The American Federation of Teachers, an affiliate of the AFL-CIO, represents 1.6 million members in more than 3,000 local affiliates nationwide, according to theunion’s website.

Being vice president of the union isn’t a bad gig, either.

AFT Executive Vice President Francine Lawrence hauled in $255,588 in salary, with total compensation of $345,513.

Scores of AFT union bosses pull down $100,000 or better each year, according todata compiled by

In the coming months, Wisconsin private-sector employees who don’t want to pay dues to labor unions they do not support can no longer be compelled to do so.

“Worker freedom is now a reality in Wisconsin. No worker will be forced to join a union or pay dues as a condition of employment,” Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, who helped shepherd the legislation through the Republican-controlled Assembly, said in a statement.

Yo, these Union Bosses are screwing the workers, just take a look at the pay these ass-holes are getting? Also, this Bill will take money out of the Democrat coffers, that is the real problem that they hate, including Obama!!!
