Labor unions should be illegal under racketeering and anti-competition laws already on the books.
I was a service fee payer to the cwa for 40 years.
In 1970 I joined the union by choice, later in the 70s it became mandatory.
CCwa is anti white, pro wetbeack(big time), pro gay, full blown marxist organization that is currently involved a plot to overthrow the us government along with the comunist party usa. Why are the allowed to exsist in the USA
