SoCal Port Strike Costing $1 Billion Per Day As Union Clerks Turn Down $190,000 Offer | RedState

In fact, other than union bosses themselves, it can be easily argued that the office workers at SoCal ports are the union movement’s crème de la crème. As the office workers’ union has, so far, rejected an offer bringing their total compensation to nearly $200,000–they have become the highest paid office workers in the nation and they have a no layoff provision in their contract.

They are the 1% among unionized workers…Which is why their strike—which is costing $1 billion per day—seems all the more ridiculous.
