    They are little capitalist enterprises themselves producing a product: the contract, and they want it produced with as little effort as humanly possible on their part.

    They believe in compromise, then compromise again, then compromise again on the compromise, and then throw in the two-tier or three-tiers, for good measure, until the workers are so compromised that they can barely get by. All the while collecting two or three salaries (example, as pres of the local, vp of the international, then there are boards and central labor unions...)

    John Mitchell received a salary from the National Civic Federation that some sources give as $10,000 per year, while the miners were lucky to earn $400, and that would be real lucky.

    God spare me the Heart to fight them... I'll fight the Pirates forever. -Mother Jones
