#1  Yeah, but what's gonna happen to those big salaries when all those 18,000 former union members stop paying their dues?
Posted by: Ebbang Uluque6305 || 11/26/2012 11:35 Comments || Top||

#2  They will raise their dues on the rest of the union members to make up for it. Either that or take a bigger cut out of the remaining union dues.

Probably kick themselves in a big raise for their 'hard work' to boot!

#3  TWINKIE/SNACK/CAKE-GATE = PCorrect, pro-OWG, NAU direct assault on anti-Union "Right-to-Work" laws in the BOTH the US Private + Public Sectors.

ONE WAY TO FOSTER OWG REGIONAL OR MULTI-STATE "GLOBAL FEDERAL UNION" IS VIA [intentional/pre-planned] "SHARED/COMMON
CHAOS" FOR NATIONAL, SOCIETAL SURVIVAL WHERE "WORKPLACE UNION" IS A MAIN METHOD TO PROTECT THE MAINSTREAM'S NORMAL QUALITY-OF-LIFE.

As per the EU/EUZ's myriad crises, the devil is how to convince the Govt, Mainstream of one or more sovereign Nation-States to pay or be responsible for the quality-of-life of other same WIDOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE + ELECTORAL/VOTER CONSENT.

> WHO PAYS?
> HOW MUCH?
> HOW?
> E.G. WHY IS SOMEONE FROM FRANCE = WESTERN EUROPE IN CHARGE OF CENTRAL + EASTERN EUROPEAN GOVT, AFFAIRS, + $$$ COFFERS?

#4  No more anti-Union + "Right-to-Work" > THERE BE THE GUBMINT, + THERE BE THE UNION - THATS IT, NADA!
Posted by: JosephMendiola || 11/26/2012 19:42 Comments || Top||

#5  They will raise their dues on the rest of the union members to make up for it.

That's what they do now anyway.

Either that or mandate larger 'assessments' from the union employers.

Jesse Jackson Jr. shielding his wife
It looks like former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.), who resigned Wednesday, is trying to take any potential heat off of his wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th) -- who is also his campaign manager.

I'm told that Sandi Jackson has hired her own legal representation as her husband's lawyers try to work out a deal in the ongoing federal probe of his campaign finances. It doesn't take too much reading between the lines of Jackson's resignation letter -- unusually poignant -- that he is telling the feds to blame him -- and leave his wife out of it. In the letter, sent Wednesday to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Jackson acknowledged the probe for the first time, said he is cooperating with "the investigators, and accept responsibility for my mistakes, for they are my mistakes and mine alone."

It's prudent for Sandi Jackson to have her own lawyer. She is under the microscope herself as federal agents are digging into Jackson campaign spending.

According to campaign finance disclosures, Sandi Jackson has been drawing $5,000-a-month payments from her husband's main campaign fund through her firm, J. Donnatella and Associates. Her company has been on the Jackson campaign payroll for years, and it is located, according to FEC records, in the couples' Washington red-brick rowhouse off DuPont Circle. Sandi Jackson was deeply involved in the South Side and south suburban political operation the couple put together -- run for a time from the basement of their Chicago home.

Former Rep. Jackson hired three high-powered lawyers to represent him -- Reid H. Weingarten and Brian M. Heberlig, partners in the Washington office of Steptoe & Johnson, and former U.S. Attorney Dan K. Webb, a Winston & Strawn partner in Chicago. This team only represents the former congressman.
