At $20,000 Per Month Pay Trumpka Cites King For 'Rights' Of Workers

$238,975 (Trumka gave himself a 44% increase in 4 years) per year, plus benefits, which is $19, 914.00 per month in salary. He likens the union fight to Dr. Martin Luther King's struggle for civil rights. As if King fought for the right to Viagra and $20,000, per month salary.

Union equates lavish benefits to black civil rights

"April 4 [is] the day on which Martin Luther King Jr. gave his life for the cause of public collective bargaining," Trumka said in another speech, in Washington, on Wednesday. And on the AFL-CIO blog, there is this notice: "Join us to make April 4, 2011, a day to stand in solidarity with working people in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana and dozens of other states where well-funded, right-wing corporate politicians are trying to take away the rights Dr. King gave his life for."
King would have called BS on this movement.
