    The lawsuit portrays UAW leaders as financially savvy schemers who had access to foreign bank accounts, a portrayal at odds with the union's attempts to position its leaders as blue-collar workers dedicated to serving their brother and sister workers.

    I'll take savvy schemers for $50,000, Alex.

    And people want you to believe that it's the big, greedy corporations that take advantage of workers. In reality, the politicians and unions are far worse than the corporations. They're constantly exploited and told that they need help to survive. But instead of providing help, they milk them for power and money. They're the greedy ones. Good corporations at least understand that a healthy, happy, well-trained workforce makes better product and is better for the company in the long term.

    'earnings" indeed.
    This is a typical Italian Sicilian move. I bet you it came from the Agnelli clan. How they expected the US government to sit there and watch it happen is beyond me.
    I bet you, the UAW jailbirds are scared **** to tell the truth...
    You can do anything you want in this world, but no matter who you are, when the United States Government says your move is illegal, you are in deep trouble.
    Even if you are Chainah.. there is not a thing you can do when the US government goes after your bolls... they will get squeezed....

    Ah but there's the problem, using an American bank would have revealed the money trail to regulators.
    The UAW heirachy allows a culture of corruption to exist but worse, allows it to hide in plain sight,
    criminals are drawn to environment s where they can operate without surveillance or auditing.

    I should have said permits, as I meant the heirachy structure, not just the people currently in those positions
    It's evil flourishing when no one is watching over or looking out for the best interests of all members.
    If the allegations are proven true, it's a crime of opportunity that should not exist in the 21st century.

    Interesting times when similar corruption accusations are being levelled at another well known group
    do we apply a double standard that says UAW=corrupt and the others as unfairly blackened because
    well, they're liked by so many folks....I'll reserve judgement on both cases until all the facts are revealed.
