The only thing that has gotten too big is CEO pocketbooks. You should remember what it's like to have to work everyday to feed and cloth a family or yourselve. You can't do it on minimum wage. Corporate level employees work hard at going to lunch, golfing, raquet ball, or meaningless meetings while making 100X what their average employee makes. If the rest of the world wants to live in poverty while select few wine and dine that's their ignorance.
And if your not able to go to your union meeting and express your concerns about the way money is spent, than you do have a problem. Any persons in a union should demand to be able to give their opinion. That's how are union works. If the ELECTED officials are not working in the best interest as a whole, than vote him out.
