When you step back and look at it, the entire issue is about money. Not money to the union members, not money to their retirement or health funds, it’s money laundering for the democrat party.
Here’s how it works. Union participation is required if you’re a teacher or for most of the state employees. You have no say in the matter. Your dues are with-held by the state and separately sent to the union—not the local union, not the state union, but to the national office. Member benefits are not paid from these dues, the state pays for those benefits from the state’s tax receipts.
What does the national unions do with those dues? They’re used to fund democrat politicians!
