10. Yep. That's called an "aristocracy of labor" (I'm sure you knew that).........

and it's yet ANOTHER way that the bosses keep the working class divided and keeps them from true organizing for their own interests. And the tops of the unions are WAY too often, supporters of the current "business union" model that discounts, ignores and often even DENIES the reality of class war.

The answer is class consciousness BY the rank-and-file workers and a bottom up form of organization for the unions that breaks the power of the bureaucracy of the union leadership. Immediately recallable delegates and leadership that makes ONLY the average wage of the workers they represent would go a long way to getting a leadership that truly represents the interests of the organized working class.
