Re: CWA leaders in it for themselves - not about helping members

Sounds exactly like today's political landscape. Politicians don't give a crap about their constituency, only about how they can improve their own financial futures. I think it is an inherent problem with the republican political system in general... it is just so open to corruption.

Unions have given us so many good things, it would be ridiculous to let them die out (or even worse to hope they die out!). The union leaders not withstanding, a union is simply a group of employees who fight oppression and unfairness. To wish them gone is to hope for unrestricted oppression from the employer; no sane person would think that is a good thing (except maybe the employer and the stockholders).

So then the million dollar question is 'How do we get the corruption out of politics?' (and therefore unions).
