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??

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

If they are Papa Obama supporters

Horseshit. They get the big ticket salaries when their companies Lose money.

Not even a nice try, to compare six figure salaries of union bosses to 8 figure salaries of CEO's.

Again, in Japan, the UK, Germany, this sort of insanity doesn't happen.

Hourly wages is one item that no one can bitch about when it comes to unionized employees.
Unions pushed wages up for all of America many years ago.
The problem with unions is not so much the wages, but the golden benefit packages and unrealistic cushy working conditions. Such as way more employees than are needed, unrealistic maximum production output speed etc.

Are you comparing the work that a union boss does to what a CEO of a private corporation does?:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

Union bosses do not work.
They extort.

Name one CEO that extorts cash from their employees with the threat of a baseball bat to the head.

Admit it Joe. Unions are for those too weak to negotiate their own wage. Management have to earn their keep. Union workers just have to pay dues under threats and intimidation.

Wages get pushed up and inflation roars.
All wages are added into the costs of goods and services.
Demand and skill level set the wages. Ask your plumber, electrician or HVAC guy.
And guess what? They are ALL flooding south because NO UNIONS.
Unions serve no purpose these days.
They are smart enough to negotiate on their own.
WELL DUH!

Unions are to create a middle class, because the plutocrats would steal the gold from our teeth if they thought they can get away with it.

They meet thuggery with thuggery. WHich, hey, is no ones fault.

Hey, I'm still waiting for you to defend that mine where they threw out the unions, then the safety standards fell and 16 miners died.

So the people who are too dumb to realize they are being ripped off by the wealthy move to the place where lots of their dumb ancestors threw away their lives so a few rich assholes could own slaves.

And today the same people are letting the wealthy run roughshod over them because they don't like the gays or the A-rabs or whoever...

Stupid people are fun!

....And, psychotic-assholes to.....
.....work Wall $treet!!!!!!

"A recent study found that 10 percent of people who work on Wall Street are “clinical psychopaths,” exhibiting a lack of interest in and empathy for others and an “unparalleled capacity for lying, fabrication, and manipulation.” (The proportion at large is 1 percent.) Another study concluded that the rich are more likely to lie, cheat and break the law."
