"Do you work for the unions?"

She probably doesn't work for the unions, but probably has been influenced by the very effective union propaganda machine.

Unions can be very good at propaganda. For example, most people think teachers are "underpaid," based largely on decades of union propaganda that makes us think teachers get paid next to nothing, when, in fact, they make pretty good money.

Sometimes when I hear these union types spouting their "underpaid" mantra, I wish I could stick them for a month in a job that is really "underpaid"- where wages are low, working conditions are brutal, and salaries are less than half of what the average "underpaid" teacher makes.
