Federal and state union pensions are a real boondoggle.

Only a few unions, unions where the workers risk their lives daily in the name of public safety should even be considered worthy of a pension.

I must confess that I will never understand forced union membership. I thought that the right to decide for yourself was an American way. When I see a work place where you must join a union in order to get a job there, I wonder how is this different than the mob offering protection for small business (for a fee or dues) so that mob members will not destroy their business.

If unions are so great and offer SO many services for their members, will employees not make the decision to join a union?

I could see Michigan workers getting up today sayint, "free at last, free at last, thank God amighty that I am free at last".

See if you (or anyone else for that matter) can come up with the difference(s) between money laundering and union dues...besides the obvious legal/illegal one.
