    and some of us have no choice in the matter. I am a teacher. I must join the union. It is required when I am hired. It really ticks me off when union dues support causes I do not believe in. I love what happened in Wisconsin and hopes it is allowed to be adopted in other states...I lose more than half of my gross pay to medicare, social security, my portion of the health insurance payment, state and federal taxes...It is just crazy!
