Union Thug Hypocrisy

From the LA Times:  Labor leaders, who were among the strongest supporters of the citywide minimum wage increase approved last week by the Los Angeles City Council, are advocating last-minute changes to the law that could create an exemption for companies with unionized workforce.
The push to include an exception to the mandated wage increase for companies that let their employees collectively bargain was the latest unexpected detour as the city nears approval of its landmark legislation to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2020.
For much of the past eight months, labor activists have argued against special considerations for business owners, such as restaurateurs, who said they would have trouble complying with the mandated pay increase....
Gonzalez said the change sought by labor officials could pressure companies into letting employees unionize as a way to seek relief from the mandated wage hike.
"Once again, the soaring rhetoric of helping the working poor is just a cover for city government acting as a tool of organized labor," he said.
So, if you are non-union, unions expect you to pay the $15 an hour but if you are a union member, too bad, too sad.The union thugs don't look after their members, all they want is their union dues.
