Taxpayers Footing the Bill for Plush Union Salaries


Ever wondered why it seems like public sector unions have all the money and win all the races? They have direct access to taxpayer money, little motivation for fiscal accountability, and fund only left leaning progressive candidates.

Watch Dog did a recent report on this issue and has noticed the spending is noticed. It has been argued all public sector union spending is political and some conservative elected officials are callng "foul".

"Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner, a Republican, recently signed an executive order asserting mandatory public-sector union dues violate the First Amendment because all government union business is political."
