New York Post: Union leaders robbing members blind

Published: Jun 19, 2010

The New York Post has an excellent piece on the astonishing frequency of embezzlement among union leaders: Remember why unions were formed in the first place — to protect workers from being taken advantage of?

Union Contract: Duly Suspended Employees Get Paid For Overtime Missed!
