I was a union official for the UAW for a while. 90% of the problems were caused by the same 10% of the people over and over.Sometimes when things were calm and the company was pressuring the union officials to go back to work in the shop (they stayed checked out on union business 40 hours a week) the union offficials would got to the 10% and get them to cause trouble and demand the union steward so they didn't have to go back to work. No suprise after 6 months to a year all the new union officials gained about 50 pounds from sitting around so much and eating more.. So when you see a fat union official you know how they got that way.

Perhaps it was the radio segment that I did this week asking for comments and feedback about unions. I asked on the air for people who were union members to call our listener line at 202-681-1732 or email us at

I was looking for comments about the good and bad that goes along with being represented by unions.

Still looking for comments, and now want them even if you don't have a union.  

Personally I think unions are outdated relics of an age that belong more to Stalin than to Dickens.

Or maybe it was the Facebook picture I posted...
