Unions Doing the Heavy Lifting

You know if I were a dues paying member of a union then the picture to the left would really piss me off.

Labor big a real heavy sleeper
Union fat cat Mark Rosenthal spends more time sleeping at his desk than organizing labor, a series of damning photos reveals.
The 400-pound president of Local 983 of District Council 37 — the city’s largest blue-collar municipal-workers union — often downs a huge meal, then drops into dreamland in the early afternoon, members of the union’s executive board told The Post.
“He eats lunch when he arrives at work at 2 p.m. Then, like clockwork, he goes to sleep with a cup of soda on the table and the straw in it,” said Marvin Robbins, a union vice president.
“Then he wakes up, looks at his watch and says, ‘I have to get out before the traffic gets bad.’ He’s usually out by 4 p.m. after being at the office two hours.”
Rosenthal is a former Parks Department employee who rose to power campaigning to rid the union of corruption in the late 1990s.
He last made embarrassing headlines in 2009, when he inspired a City Council bill requiring jumbo-size ambulances for morbidly obese patients after he had a stroke at City Hall.
Since then, he hasn’t been making much of an effort to give the city’s ambulances a break and slim down. Union officials say he racks up $1,400 in monthly food bills on the union dime.
Much of the 5-foot-7, 400-plus-pound Rosenthal’s food tabs are for catered union events and meals he writes off as “union business,” board members claim.~snip~
The term "gravy train" takes on new meaning doesn't it?
 This guy knocks down $156,000 a year and claims he puts in 12 to 14 hour days, he doesn't say how many of those hours he's awake.
His salary, and the salary of others who hold these unaccountable gravy train union jobs comes from the dues of the members.
These are the guys who closed down Hostess, gave their members Obamacare and support democrat fat cats with the money paid to them by the rank and file. They also use those dues to rack up perks for themselves and their democrat buddies.

Is this what you guys think you deserve as representation?
