The country's biggest unions *support* Obama's illegal amnesty? Why in the world...? OH...
"Unions fight to preserve Obama's immigration action."
Say what?? Let me see if I've got this right: Obama had decreed--imperially ordered--that five to ten million illegal immigrants be allowed to stay in the U.S. and work. Classic economic theory--well tested and uncontroversial--says these people will compete with unskilled Americans for basic jobs.
You'd think an American labor union would be *resisting* this huge influx of illegal workers. Yet the AFL-CIO, SEIU, American Federation of Teachers and others are strongly in favor.
At first glance this makes no sense.
Then you realize that the folks to whom it makes perfect sense are the heads of the unions, who stand to make more money if there are more union members--regardless of how well individual members are doing.
Now it all makes sense. The union bosses line their pockets at the expense of their members. Perfectly understandable.
