Editorial: Union's attack on Sonja Finn unnecessary, harms restaurant
A friend of mine in Pittsburgh sent me these recent news articles and editorials.
It’s all about some Stalinist SEIU pig going after a single mother shop keeper….
Because she had the audacity to run in a political campaign for City Council….
Against his preferred candidate.
And nor did it matter to SEIU that she was the local Democrat Party nominee.
It wasn’t who they wanted and what they say goes!
So he files a complaint to the US Department of Labor about her…
Claiming she was wrongfully diverting her tips among her staff…
Even though it’s what her non-unionized kitchen & wait staff approved of…
And even though they get on average $21 hourly for their work.
How dare this business woman even be!
Thereafter a Marxist conception of class struggle led to an almost totally imaginary class categorization being inflicted in the villages, where peasants with a couple of cows or five or six acres more than their neighbors were now being labeled "kulaks," and a class war against them declared
Stalinists just can't stand the fact that anyone else might have the wherewithal to do better than them.
LD 1880 – “An Act To Prohibit Mandatory Membership in a Union or Payment of Agency Fees as a Condition of Employment”

Again, if this law passes, will it mean that folks—say, teachers—who choose not to join the union or pay fees will simply work under the contract that the union bargains for?
But not receive other benefits in contract related to membership.
Matt, I think that's a very HUGE "if" since Maine appears to have a strong progressive/socialist base in the Capital. In reality, it looks like we have a better chance of benefiting from a national Right-To-Work law if/when one is passed... even if it's just one for public-servants as is now under consideration in the Janus vs. AFSCME case with our SCOTUS.
LIVING IN THE LAP OF LUXURY
According to a report it filed with the US Department of Labor, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) spent over $2.3 million at 4- to 5-star hotels around the world in 2016. (Data for 2017 is not yet available.) With so many of SEIU’s members working low-paying jobs as janitors and health care workers, it seems unlikely that many of SEIU’s members regularly travel in such luxury. Below are some of the amenities available at several of these fine hotels.
Although I realize we have a lot of fake news floating around these days, I hope this new article is true:
SEIU slashes funding for $15 minimum wage movement

I’m confused, Moving Forward. Do you hate unions because they don’t fight for workers, or because they do?
If the link is credible, it points to an answer: paying for minimum wage efforts isn't cost-effective for the union. Not enough new members to recoup the expense. Translation: private-sector workers don't believe union membership can help them.
I would add to that ,they do not derive enough political influence for the expense.
