If you are an Obama union drone in the SEIU, your wage is pegged to minimum wage as a multiple. When minimum wage is increased, union hacks all get raises even if they are already making two or three times minimum wage.
If President Obama succeeds in raising the minimum wage law, he’ll have given many unions an automatic pay increase, a new report shows.
“An analysis of union collective bargaining agreements available from the Department of Labor’s Office of Labor-Management Standards indicates that many service, retail and hospitality industry labor unions—such as UNITE-HERE or the Service Employees International Union (SEIU)—peg baseline wages to the federal minimum wage,” the Center for Union Facts (CUF) observes. “Thus, in many cases, raising the federal minimum wage will either trigger wage renegotiations or automatic wage hikes for certain unionized employees.”
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
