Now that more than half of the states have enacted laws outlawing compulsory union membership in order to get a job, labor union membership has declined, and in tandem, so has the flow of money to Democrats (nearly all union political donations go to donkeys).

My Take - This is more than just a payoff. This is designed to get unions to ignore Democrat's push to allow illegal immigration.

This is a twofer scheme. Make no mistake about this. Unions aren't concerned about the country, they're concerned about membership, and they don't care who they are as long as they're dues paying members.
