They say it is a problem of free riders…

The left insists that right-to-work laws are unfair because they allow some workers to become free riders benefiting from union representation without being required to pay for it.

Cal Mott, a retired political science and social studies teacher, now is director of a Michigan Education Association unit that represents school districts in southeastern Oakland County.

“The goal is to get Governor Snyder to veto” the legislation, Mott said. “I don’t think that’s going to happen, but at least he’ll see that a lot if people are saying no.”

If the legislation is signed into law, Mott said fewer people likely will join unions but the unions will have to represent them.

“They don’t have to pay into it, but they reap the benefits.”

They don’t pay in but they reap the benefits? Where have I heard that before? Oh yes, it sounds just like the 47% who pay no income tax, doesn’t it? Funny how leftists are okay with some free riders while other free riders make them absolutely, positively see red.

    It’s okay to take from someone with more until that someone is me. That’s what they’re saying.

    I really despise people like that. I despise double standards, even when they are in my favor.

    I know a union guy who complains about the union protecting the lazy and bemoans having to be part of the USW. On his facebook acct he recently cried that “Unions f-ing built this state!”.

    He lacks intellectual integrity. I didn’t comment on his statement because I don’t get into facebook drama. I was also at a loss for an appropriate response that didn’t make him look stupid.

    There is one thing on which the union goons and I agree: A hell of a lot of people will only join a union if they are forced to under color of law.
