Since it looks like they were able to get most of the double payments back, I don't think many went to union thugs.
Yeh....read the article after I posted...color me lazy...
It’s Sunday, I try to be lazy on Sunday. Besides, I don’t like the idea a reading the AJC anyday. Your original point was well taken. Cheers
