Unions call it featherbedding.Business and taxpayers wouldn't know,they cannot afford one.For half a century,the ILA has been paid extra,to protect them from the modern world.They are still demanding that protection ( Can't be a racket if you don't make any threats ) plus all the featherbedding,100% vacation for some..on and on,'til somebody puts all those things into a container,take it out to sea,do the Hoffa.Yup.Because we wind up paying for all of the graft,thieving,and just lazy boogers. Validate your 2nd Amendment Rights.Carry.
