Worth Quoting

Union workers earn 26 percent more than nonunion workers, according to the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics. Their median weekly earnings for full-time wage and salary work were $740 in 2002, compared with $587 for their nonunion counterparts. For men, it was $780 versus $652; for women, $667 versus $510; for African Americans, $615 versus $477; and for Latinos, $623 versus $408. - U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Earnings, January 2003.

The Republican leadership went precinct by precinct and block by block around the state, using computer programs like a heat-seeking missile to attempt to destroy the careers of every Anglo Democrat in the Texas congressional delegation - Texas AFL-CIO President Emmett Sheppard.
