Well, considering that this thread and my comment had nothing to do with contributions or money, I feel no need to answer that question. The thread was about supporting/not supporting their "rights" as unions.

Along those lines, I don't think anyone deserves special rights or treatment regardless of what sentimental language you want to throw around like "working class" that is somehow supposed to make people feel righteous for supporting unions. Anyone that works hard deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of if you are at a desk on a keyboard, or on a factory assembly line.
