With omerta in mind. What is the news? Their is no "Gambino" or "Genovese" crime families of NYC. I'm 30 and have served jail time. "G" anybody who thinks otherwise belongs in a mental ward. Some people in the F.B.I. maybe? Or the "Freemasons". Times have changed since 12:30 08/24/2011. 8:50 07/07/18

Genovese and Gambino families are alive, well and immensely rich and politically as powerful as they ever were.

Not nearly as much as they used to be. How do I know this? There's a huge condo going up in my immediate neighborhood that's being built non-union. The unions were the mobs mechanism of control of the construction industry. Back in the day, they would have crushed a non-union job this big. Now they can't.

How exactly can organize crime infiltrate a union? If Unions themselves are that large, how can be intimidated by organized crime. The said union will probably dwarf the criminal syndicate. Or unless the "union" actually is the crime syndicate, and a "union of laborers"/collective of laborers is just a facade. No laborers came together to collectively bargain. They were all just waiting for a mob boss to find them a job.
