SALARIES OF WASTEFUL CULINARY WORKERS UNION - June 28

Below is the team at Culinary Workers Union Local 226 whose job it is to harass the UFC and oppose the legalization of MMA in New York, which would bring jobs and an overall positive economic impact to the state. These salaries come from their members’ hard-earned money for issues that have nothing to do with labor rights and conditions. Union members work hard to provide for their families, especially in this economic climate, and the Culinary Workers Union has continued to frivolously spend their dues on wasteful issues.  Most of these employees of the Culinary Workers Union are paid a very generous wage that would make most union members envious of their salaries.

Is this the best way for the union to spend their members’ money? Do these Culinary Union employees, who continue to put their focus on an issue clear across the country, deserve their wages?
