Public Service Unions; the Latest Money Laundering Scheme

Updated on June 11, 2012

What these Public Service Union Bosses have going on is nothing short of the most ingenious money laundering scheme ever designed; it would make the likes of Al Capone or John Gotti proud. Up until now it has remained virtually undiscovered; until the courage of Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker shined the light of truth down into the sewer and sent the SIEU union bosses scurrying for cover!

You see, unlike private sector collective bargaining which takes place between private corporations; beholding to stockholders, and union bosses; beholding to their membership there is no such reciprocal relationship in the public sector. If the private company gives away too much which adversely affects its’ profitability the stockholders replace those responsible or in some cases the company goes under. There is a vested interest on both sides for the company to sustain its ability to make a profit which translates into a stable work environment for its’ workers.

However, no such reciprocal relationship exists in the public sector. In fact an almost incestuous one exists. Union bosses collect forced dues from their membership. Then they donate a large percentage of this money to the campaigns of those running for public office; this money is donated 100% to the campaigns of Democratic candidates! These same Democratic candidates then become supposed public servants whose duties include negotiating the contracts between public service workers and the various branches of state and local governments or at the very least have the jurisdiction of presiding over these contracts. Thus a side with us or we’ll vote you out or at least we’ll finance the campaign of someone running against you, environment is created.

Now where do these Public Service Employees get their money from which these union dues are extorted? Well here’s where the money laundering comes in! Guess who pays the salaries of these Public Service Workers; you and I and all the other private sector workers pay their salaries. So for some of you out there that are having a tough time making ends meet these days; perhaps your home is in danger of going into foreclosure; perhaps you are struggling to pay for your own healthcare coverage; well you are most assuredly paying these public service workers handsome salaries and taking care of their healthcare plans, thank you very much!

Now this is the dirty little secret the Union Bosses don’t want you to realize. That’s why the head of the AFL-CIO Richard Trumka when asked on one of the Sunday Morning shows how were the 46 states that could file for bankruptcy going to make it he replied; “there are still lots of people out there that aren’t paying enough taxes!” Now doesn’t that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside; make you wanna go out there and hug a public service union worker? King Trumka the First decrees you and I aren’t paying enough taxes. We aren’t paying enough so his workers can have more. If that is not blatant Income Redistribution then what is it?

But back to the money laundering aspect of all this; the salaries of these Public Service Workers are paid with our tax dollars; then the union extorts a certain percentage of their salaries as Union Dues ( the higher the salary the more money they take); then these same dollars originally paid by you and I go into the campaign coffers of Democratic candidates we don’t support; then these Democrats win due to their enormous war chest and they are the ones the union bosses deal with the next time so called collective bargaining takes place. I told you Al Capone or John Gotti would be proud of this money laundering scheme.

This is why there is such strong union opposition to what Governor Walker is proposing in Wisconsin. He’s not taking away their collective bargaining rights; he’s attempting to destroy the most ingenious money laundering scheme ever devised! The state of our union rest on the outcome of this encounter; so goes Wisconsin so goes the United States of America!

      you have a right to be confused as I opined incorrectly; what I meant to say was the place for unions was in the private sector certainly not in the Public Sector.

      Sorry for the confucion!

      Forgive me but I am confused with the response to my comment? Or maybe I am confused with in my own comment? Should I have said 'Public Service jobs' or government jobs. The capitalization in your response is what has me confused.

      I agree; the place for unions is the public sector, certainly not the Public Sector!

      Unions should have a place, and be limited with in that place. The public sector jobs is not the place and can result in nothing good with tax payers dollars being swiped away from where they should go and to somewhere that ultimately has no right to tax dollars.

      Trumka speaks for most of the Socialists including Obama when he made that remark; remember Obama's impromptu Joe The Plummer moment on the Campaign Trail; it told us everything about this Karl Marx wanna be!

      Amen Old Pool Guy; every state should be a Right to Work State and we'd see how many opted to join the unions!

      If each Union member had to sit down and write a check to the union every month to continue working, I wonder how many would write that check with pleasure. Now it is kind of like taxes. The bucks are withheld from their pay checks so they never see them, thus they don't miss them. I would bet many don't even know how much they really pay in Union Dues.

      To my knowledge, the Union Members have no say-so whatsoever in how their dues money is spent by the Union. I would be fairly certain they never even receive an accounting of the money received and spent by Unions, but I could be wrong.

      Union membership should be optional, not mandatory.
