Another Rich Union Thug

Just another reason why people should not join unions- they support the lavish lifestyles of union leaders.
From the Chicago Sun Times: Karen Lewis, the Chicago Teachers Union president now considering whether to run for mayor, has frequently railed against the influence of the wealthy.
“Why do people of wealth and privilege try to convince the world they have neither?” she said on Twitter last year. “Be honest that you don’t have a clue about poverty.”
She has ripped Mayor Rahm Emanuel as a tool of corporate Chicago, labeled him “Mayor 1%” and described herself as “not egotistical or rich.”
Lewis isn’t as wealthy as Emanuel, a multimillionaire who made his fortune during a short stint as an investment banker. But she makes more than $200,000 a year and has an ownership interest in three homes, records show.
That includes vacation homes in Hawaii and in the upscale “Harbor Country” area of southwestern Michigan, where Emanuel has a second home, property records show.
Lewis, 61, has said she has launched an informal exploratory committee in anticipation of a possible mayoral run in February’s election, when Emanuel will be seeking a second term. Last week, Lewis put the odds at “50-50” she will run.  http://politics.suntimes.com/article/chicago/3-homes-200000-plus-pay-possible-mayoral-candidate-lewis/tue-08122014-855pm
Yeah, I'm pretty sure most teachers who belong to the teacher's union in Chicago don't have multiple homes with a $200,000 salary.
If you join a union, you support the lavish lifestyles of the head union thugs.
Just another reason not to join a union.
