Pro-Democrat Union Goons threaten Non-Union Hurricane Sandy Cleanup Workers and their families

Yet another example at the types of people Democrats have financing them getting away with threats and harassment. Even as they constantly claim conservative groups are actually the violent ones. Yet another example of how liberals use transference to get away with doing what they claim their political foes are doing.

VIA Daily Caller :

Unionized local employees repeatedly harassed and intimidated non-union workers of a private disaster cleanup firm that won a government contract to restore Long Island, New York, in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

The vice president of the union even made threats against the wife and kids of one of the workers. That worker felt it necessary to call the police and pursue other security measures to protect his family, a source told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

After Hurricane Sandy devastated the New York and New Jersey shoreline in late October, Looks Great Services (LGS) won a bid to haul away debris, clear roads and remove damaged trees. New York’s Nassau County hired the company to complete $70 million worth of repairs.

Soon thereafter, representatives of Local 138, a union representing heavy equipment operators, began visiting construction sites, demanding that the company hire unionized employees to help with the job.

But LGS was paying its workers — some of whom came from out of state — market-based wages, rather than union wages, in compliance with federal law regarding disaster recovery jobs.

“If the contract is union, we are union, if it’s not, we’re not,” said Kristian Agoglia, president of LGS, in an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation.

His answer didn’t satisfy the union, which began making inflammatory statements to workers at LGS construction sites.

Federal Government has more low-wage jobs than Wal-Mart and McDonalds!

These same people pushing for more government jobs are the same ones who constantly complain about these pro-Democrat unions not being allowed in both McDonalds and Wal-Mart. Coincidence?

VIA NBC News : The federal government is better at creating low-paying jobs than Wal-Mart and McDonald’s combined, according to a new report.

A study released earlier this month from the public policy group Demos states that through various forms of government funding in the private sector, nearly two million people are making $12 an hour or less. The number of workers at Wal-Mart and McDonald’s together at $12 an hour or less is currently around 1.5 million, according to the report.

“The sheer number of those workers making so little is surprising,” said Amy Traub, a senior policy analyst at Demos and co-author of the study.

“We assume people working on behalf of America would be making more, but that’s not the case,” Traub said. “And many of these people are making less than $12 an hour.”

Liberal Media Bias Exposed : MSNBC Host Ed Schultz gets over $200,000 from Liberal Union Pals for Good Coverage

MSNBC Ed Schultz bought by Unions Liberal Media Bias Exposed : MSNBC Host Ed Schultz gets over $200,000 from Liberal Union Pals for Good Coverage

If any one was really surprised that MSNBC hosts have been bought off by Democrats, and their liberal supporters then you have either been living under a rock, are completely clueless, or just haven’t been paying any attention at all.  MSNBC is easily the most bias liberal mainstream media outlet there is. The entire organization is corrupt beyond belief, and this proves it.

(Newsbusters) What a shock — labor unions paying one of their biggest cheerleaders in the media.

Perhaps Ed Schultz could explain what he does for unions to warrant such largesse. I don’t recall hearing anything along these lines on his radio program or MSNBC show.

In fiscal 2011, Schultz received $190,000 from the Communications Workers of America for what the U.S. Department of Labor categorized as “representational activities.”

For swag like that, you’d think Schultz could at least get it right about the CWA name. Instead, he invariably refers to it as the “Communication” Workers of America when its president, Larry Cohen, is a guest on Schultz’s radio show, as Cohen often is.

Schultz also received $9,900 in fiscal 2011 from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), putting his union haul for the year at almost $200,000.

This represented a fivefold increase over the $37,350 Schultz received from unions in fiscal 2010 — $15,000 from the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), $14,850 from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, and $7,500 from the Communications Workers of America.
