When your wages are negotiated with an elected official that your union dues helped elect, and that elected official is not required to show a profit - hell, they don't even have to break even, in order to tax producers to fund your own lifestyle, and the producers don't have any say so about the aforementioned wages, not to mention the cushy benefits and hot-dang pension - it is called stealing. Simple as that!
