Family members who primarily care for adult disabled relatives being strong armed by union representatives to join!
From the article:
"Caregivers who vote against joining a union or don't vote at all would get to choose whether to become members if SEIU or AFSCME receives the most votes, but even if they decline to join, they will have to pay "fair share" dues, according to union representatives."
(That means whether or not you join the union you will still have to pay a part of the stipend you receive SSDI on behalf of the person(s) you care for).
"Union advocates have promised families that they will find a way to increase their monthly stipends from the state, which change annually because they are based on federal Supplemental Security Income [SSI] payments."
What do you think?!
And I live near the windy city. Obama is the political fruits of the corrupt Mayor Daley machine. My mother taught me you are the " company you keep! "

OMG anon! That is horrible.
Someone asked the other day if we felt that people still cared about other people. I said I thought they did, but this type of thing makes me thing I could be wrong about some people. I guess the unions care, as long as you don't get between them and their union benefits. Sick bastards (the one's that set fire to your home).
