Slip slidin’ away – Union thug membership falls to it’s lowest level since in the 1930s
If there’s one good side effect from Obama and the Marxist Democrats destroying the economy it’s the decline in union membership. Union thugs needs to start going out to intimidate more people as union membership as fallen to it’s lowest level since the 1930s.
The nation’s labor unions suffered sharp declines in membership last year, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said Wednesday, led by losses in the public sector as cash-strapped state and local governments laid off workers and — in some cases — limited collective bargaining rights.
The union membership rate fell from 11.8 percent to 11.3 percent of all workers, the lowest level since the 1930s.
Total membership fell by about 400,000 workers to 14.4 million. More than half the loss — about 234,000 — came from government workers including teachers, firefighters and public administrators.
Dick Trumka and Jimmy Hoffa Jr are crying in their caviar.
