Nice little piece of corruption

I have only recently commented that I am a supporter of unions. While I oppose government meddling in the workplace I firmly believe that workers organizing in order to get a bigger return on the labor they invest is not only a fine idea but another way in which the marketplace can regulate itself.

Of course it falls apart when the government gets involved. Since the unions have effectively bought and paid for the Democratic party they are getting some serious perks that non union folks don't have access too. Like government bailouts to keep their jobs from vanishing like everyone elses are, or this little piece of corruption.

It is one thing for union members to get a better deal from their employer than non union workers, they should. The government however should treat all workers as equals and not favor those who shovel in the campaign cash.
