Although I'm no fan of TDU I do applaud them greatly for efforts like this. I also am upset that these same officials can also draw multiple retirements while we can't even enjoy a 2nd career after we retire.
Today's unions exist via special privileges gained by lobbying. Organized labor's unconstitutional Magna Carta, the National Labor Relations Act is all the proof I need. Additionally, and according to my copy of Unfree Speech by Bradley Smith, the first PAC's were formed by unions back in the 1940's.
