There are moments in this modern world in which fewer and fewer workers belong to a union when I wonder how did we reach a point in time when a UNION is now asking for LOWER WAGES! The city of Los Angeles has passed new legislation which will witness a rise in the minimum wage until it reaches $15 an hour. HOWEVER, the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor is now upset and seeks to roll back the wage increase.
Rusty Hicks, the executive director of this group of unions is afraid that business will become upset and assume a vigorous anti-union stand. So, he wants a lower minimum wage and will seek to persuade business men to negotiate benefits such as health care in exchange of wage increases. How the hell did this alleged union leader become one? The object of unions is to fight for higher wages, NOT for lower wages! If a union leader is afraid of businessmen, he should cease being a union leader and go over to the other side!
