Terry "Gooch" McGowan, head of Operating Engineers Local 139, suggests in his latest newsletter (p. 2) that some people hold unfair attitudes toward labor:
“Lazy union workers that just keep taking and demanding more.”
He suggests that union members challenge these stereotypes:
So the next time you hear some of that rhetoric, tell them to stop their self-righteous whining and save it for when they are well into their retirement. See if there is enough left in Social Security to subsidize them after their 401k is exhaust- ed. Tell them how fortunate they are to have a safety net like Medicare (Gasp! A government health care program taking care of them). So each and every member has a great story to tell and a great product to sell.
A great idea. An even better one would be for Gooch to stop supporting Scott Walker.
