Shadow bosses government unions the sometimes -- control America and robbed taxpayers.
Elizabeth they control -- America -- say we're powerless.
Now they do.
That they really do control America they're in government there in our military.
They're in our national security sites.
There in our favourite sector there are now small where people have a right to choose yes or no who.
Increasingly the industries that are not unionized grew in the union share shrink -- in government it's bigger than ever.
Yeah because of course they unionized shops in the private sector go out of business but the government never goes out of business.
And now 41%.
Of government employees all across our nation are unionized and this is having a -- big effect in fact we think.
We think government employee unions are fueling.
Big government and government growth and that's -- our big takeaways.
-- yeah okay.
-- -- -- Explain how they -- but they want bigger government because then they get so it's really easy it's one of the greatest scams being perpetrated on the American public money goes from.
To the unions to the politicians who are bought and paid for back to the unions.
It is an amazing scam.
And in the case of the leaders of the unions you say they are the true 1%.
Of course I mean will they get a lot of money to Occupy Wall Street.
You don't you know bush deal with why occupy wall fisherman occupying -- plus she headquarters these are people who make.
I half a million dollars a year one of them 325000.
In eighteen months.
I'm private planes.
I mean is astounding -- they make about ten times what the rank and file union members -- talk about income inequality.
And you've written apology offices that they've really are elegant flat and the you're the teacher's union office I I tried to go in.
To take pictures recently and but I'll do that ardent.
Give -- explanation of that on another show but those places are beautiful.
That the union support some shadowy cause it's oh they sure do.
From the media matters mean I don't know if you -- know would media matters is what I know because -- this is media or review group but.
It is dedicates itself to killing off fox so that's right they've come after -- 800000.
NEA national education association of the teacher's union teacher is right to teachers union that but since then rank and file members don't know that.
But also asks me American federation of state -- employees gave money.
The AF of LCI OC IO gave them money but you know what the -- classified ads.
Right well as its public relations side -- their side and media matters and the Democrats say.
More money free unit -- -- noble but -- members don't know this the members never get a chance to know how this money's being spent.
-- is classified as public relations.
It just goes into administration and overhead.
And the members seem happy when I go to union rallies mural -- suits well I'd I would disagree with the and that when they have an opportunity to have their job without having to be part of the union.
They vote pretty quickly to not in Wisconsin when they weren't forced to pay tribute or to be a member of the union to keep their -- tax left like that.
Yeah that's important to give all of those rank and file union members real voice and a vote to unions are not pro worker.
They're pro shadow bosses.
Hundreds -- if you got my attention we you talked about the military I assume the military is an exception.
A third of the military our civilian employees and of those 60% are are ready union that's that means that you have unions on military bases.
Filing grievances and telling people how they can use these civilian employees in fact we found agreements that was hilarious.
Where the union has filed a grievance on a military base.
When the price of Soto went from fifty cents to 55 cents this constant filing grievances makes it tough to run an enterprise -- in the -- jag corps had to fight patent imagine how much taxpayer dollars went to just defeat that one grievance and by their.
-- security you mean Border Patrol.
-- feeling about the emergency management agency immigration and even NASA scientists.
That's right even the peace corps just looking at Homeland Security.
We found its we found 62 people getting paid to do Homeland Security work.
And you know what they're doing full time -- just union work.
This is Homeland Security Homeland Security is 40% unionized.
