Union Bosses Making Bank

|| By FITSNEWS || They aren’t making Boeing CEO money, but the leaders of organized labor are doing very well for themselves …

According to government data compiled by reporter Jason Hart of Watchdog.org, the average compensation for a corporate CEO in America is $216,000 a year.

AFL-CIO leader Richard Trumka made $322,131 last year – and he didn’t even rank among the top 100 highest-paid Big Labor bosses.

Gotta love how they work for the “little man,” right?

Roughly 14.6 million workers were unionized in 2014 – up modestly from 14.5 million in 2013.  Of course the percentage of salaried workers belonging to a union declined from 11.3 to 11.1 percent.

As usual, government is keeping unions in business – with the percentage of public sector workers belonging to a union standing at 35.7 percent in 2014 (up from 35.3 percent the previous year).  The private sector percentage?  It slipped from 6.7 to 6.6 percent over the same time period.

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: Unions (especially government unions) are cancers.  Sort of like politicians at all levels of government who perpetuate their existence while at the same time doling out favors to heavily subsidized (usually unionized) corporations.

Playing both sides …

Right – BCBS executives are doing very good.

Thirty-two Blues plan CEOs who served that role for part or all of 2013 collectively
earned nearly $25 million in salary and about $103 million in total compensation, which
includes bonuses and incentives, according to data supplied by state regulators in response to The AIS Report’s Freedom of Information Act requests
I looked at the BLS link and there is no way I believe that CEOs of banking and brokerage firms are only making 200k a year.

Nice that you keep the facts out there but Union Bosses screwing the sheeple members is not exactly a “Man bites dog” story.

Your CEO pay numbers are BS. CEOs in the US are the highest paid CEOs in the world. Their compensation is a combination of salary, bonus, profit sharing, commissions and stock options. A CEO operating an organization the size of the AFl-CIO would probably be making several million a year in total compensation. In 2014 the Median CEO pay for fortune 500 Companies topped 10 million. CEOs in the us make about 4000% of average worker compensation. In Europe that number is closer to 400%

Why Do You Run From Who You R September 14, 2015 at 2:24 pm

A guy living in Ohio who conducts training for union organizers and then posts regularly as a conservative Christian Walker supporter, who claims to have time to live in Las Vegas, Arizona, West Palm Beach, swill at a local drinking hole in Myrtle Beach, probably is pulling in about $150,000 a year in Union money. Only in America.

Damn Rocky! LMAO!!! You are close. I do conduct training for fellow ‘arbiters’, post regularly as a Christian conservative supporting my political hero Mark Sanford( I love the way he kicks the shit of the MSM,Fits,Democrats and the Republican establishment) and ALL Republicans against the evil and perverted Democrat Party, do some work in Vegas,Arizona,WPB and love to visit MB. I only ‘swill’ to the sound of Carolina Beach Music-listening to 94.9 the surf as I type-on the beautiful Carolina beaches.NEVER belonged to a UNION even as a teacher/administrator. Fuck em. Bunch of liberals. Money? Don’t discuss that. :)

Training "Arbirters" September 14, 2015 at 3:30 pm

So you train people to sit on websites and shitpost all day for a living?

flip September 14, 2015 at 4:12 pm

I train people to be ‘perfect’ and to rule accordingly.

Rocky Verdad September 14, 2015 at 4:50 pm

Must be, the always ruled in my favor.

Rocky Verdad September 14, 2015 at 3:33 pm

Dang Flip, you sound almost human. Did a lot of arbitrations for a large bank years back – our contracts all had arbitration clauses in them. Was cheaper than lawsuits to settle disputes, and you could usually get a judgement working faster. Arbiters are generally fair.

Such foul language from a self-proclaimed “Christian conservative”.

Welfare Fraud Investigator September 14, 2015 at 3:28 pm

$150,000? No, Flip couldn’t rip us off that much or we’d know about it immediately. We do suspect he’s getting more food stamps than he should be though.

Georgetown is corrupt September 14, 2015 at 4:24 pm

Heck slide on down to Georgetown SC and take a look at the abandoned Steel Mill. The largest private employer in Georgetown is closed. But wait it gets better. The union boss James E. Sanderson, Jr. is still drawing his big fat paycheck while the union members are on welfare. So even when the dues paying members are going without the union boss is drinking Dom Perrion.

AFL-CIO leader Richard Trumka made $322,131.

I don’t get fits envy. As much as I dislike unoins, it is a major organization. The average doctor makes $200,000. I know preachers in SC that make more than Trumka. Megyn Kelly makes more than Trumka. Dumb ass T-Rav probably makes more than Trumka.

Conservatives are not supposed to fault anyone for legally making money and, even in government, we shouldn’t fault the “earner” but instead those who set his salary.
