Union Shafts College Students

I have a hard time feeling sorry for union stooges, but perhaps these college students have learned a lesson from their experience about how unions truly operate. If you think it's about the workers, you're wrong. It's all about money, and the power money brings.

SEIU, the nation’s fastest growing union, has about 1.7 million members, many of whom work in cafeterias and dining halls on college campuses. On some of these campuses, students have organized rallies and even hunger strikes in support of workers’ rights.

The letter alleges that SEIU officials encouraged students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to help organize food services workers, while at the same time entering into a deal with the workers’ employer that would insure there would never be a union at North Carolina.

Live and learn.
