While public employee unions are crying about the hardships their members suffer, the heads of the unions certainly aren’t doing so badly. A study by the Center for Public Integrity found that leaders earned between $173,000 and $618,000 at major public unions in 2009, Politico reports. Of course it is union dues that pay those salaries.
