    Richard Trumka said his public employee union fight was between the haves and the have nots. 

    This is possibly  true. 

    From the POV of the union, the haves are the taxpayers and they want to take it away. 

    From the POV of the private sector, the Unions are the haves and the productive members of society are ones who the haves took it from.

        How, are you denying that public unions are trying to extort more from the private sector for thier own greed? 

        Or that the private sector notices that they are being conspired against by unions, politicians, and public servants to take more from them?

          No, no.  Only employers are "greedy" for wanting more income; employees are always "cheated" and "mistreated".  Please maintain correct terminology.

          This makes the employers (taxpayers) all greedy by not paying union members twice what they are worth.  By proposing that those members are only worth what the private sector (through free enterprise) employees doing the same job are worth it also makes the taxpaying citizen guilty of mistreatment, or course.

            All paid for by the private sector, so no, they didn' "pay" anything.

        Their check stubs say "consumptions" rather than "withholdings."

          Every dollar in that paycheck came from the private sector.    The employees produced NOTHING.

    You need a new joke writer.  This one doesn't even rate a guffaw.

      I agree, Trumka isn't funny.   

      His stupidity is hilarious, though.

    Kind of hard to laugh at your agenda of divide and conquer.
    It's not funny.
