Happy to help.

It's not as if they advocate communism or something. Union leaders are trying to RAISE the living standards of their members. The reason people resent CEOs etc with big salaries is because they're often actively trying to reduce workers wages and benefits at the same time.
it's extremely dumb anyway. The supposed 99% aren't in anyway a collective mass of similarly oppressed peoples. Just seems like justification, to me, for upper-middle idiots to get passionate about something they don't really have any justification to be passionate about.
Trade union leaders are probably cunts as well. I don't really know to be honest.
You aren't forced to join a union (not these days anyway), so it isn't really our business if they get paid 100k a year. This compared a similar top job in terms of hours, stress, status etc in the private sector is probably pittance anyway.
What's your point, spaceman?
Seems reasonable then.
