Franklin Center - Big Labor bosses and so-called “solidarity”

Big Labor bosses and so-called "solidarity"

Did you know that almost 500 union officers and employees made more than a quarter of a million dollars last year? For many Americans, such payouts fly in the face of the “solidarity” rhetoric that union leaders frequently use. That's why Watchdog.org reporters have been hard at work owning this story and asking the tough questions about Big Labor's salaries.

How much do labor union leaders in your state make?

 

A Note >From Our President

Dear Reader,

At their best, labor unions can be a strong advocate for employees, but often union leaders stop effectively representing their members and focus rather on personal gain. Watchdog.org recently found that hundreds of union officers and employees made more than a quarter of a million dollars last year - and all of it came straight out of the pockets of hardworking Americans.

Many employees have little choice in how their dues are spent, so we want to make sure they're informed about the inner workings of the labor groups that are supposed to represent their interests. Holding government accountable means holding influential interest groups accountable too.

Best regards,

Jason Stverak
President, Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity
