I agree. The unions have learned to turn every money dispute into a "safety issue" because it plays better with the public. But if you investigate a bit you will find that the "safety issue" is about getting overtime when working more than 8 hours.
In other words, it is about money. It is always about money.

The absolute ugly truth about the unions is that they are every bit as greedy as the people they condemn. Greed isn't limited to the Republicans. It isn't limited to management.
I have long said that students in America should not be allowed to leave high school, including dropping out, until they have passed a course in economics 101. When that happens the Democrats and the Marxists will finally be finished, defeated by the knowledge of basic economics.

The unions and unionworkers justify their greed by saying, "Well, management rewards themselves all the time with bonus money and new cars and hey, didn't they just remodel their offices?" Union workers think they are entitled, just like the welfare rats.
