7. The crime is NOT the American workers make union wages...

..the crime is that Americans have come to accept that American workers should be making 1990 wages, with no benefits, and no pensions.

The Unions are not the problem. The fact that people can make a wage that could allow you to buy a modest home, a car, send your kids to a State college, and maybe even have one parent home with the little ones, should still be the NORM in America. It used to be. It used to be that those union jobs created the Middle Class, they supported communities, and gave people a path to the American Dream.

Now, the union-busters and haters, want everyone to work for $10.00 an hour with no benefits, so that people like Romney and the Koch Bros and Adelson, can make even more persona wealth. THAT is the crime here... that too many Americans believe that it's somehow wrong for Americans to have the American Dream.
