Who are the people breaking the law in the name of workers’ rights?
I go into detail about how men like Chris Magoulas of Unite Here exemplify the hypocrisy of Trade Unions.
It’s about time people stand up the snakes
In the past few posts I have described the underbelly of unions as they clamor to gain contracts in this climate of desperation.
