Thirty years ago about 30% of American workers belonged to a union and a union worker earned enough with his or her job in order to purchase a home without the spouse getting a job. Thanks to the benefits of modern capitalism those days are long since gone and the middle class earns less today than in past times. Sarah Palin is very upset because members of the Internal Revenue Service got raises. As Sarah notes, “it’s a federal government program, we’re paying their their salaries, yet they’re a union. The Obama administration will kow tow to their friends who are union thugs.”
Yep, all union leaders are thugs according to the sage of Alaska. If only we appointed folk from Wall Street. Of course, when they get in trouble they demand the government give them money. They are no thugs, just believe the government works for their interests.
