Pay-to-Play, UAW Style

The UAW states its members have sacrificed enough, and urges taxpayer bailout money. But they’re not telling you it’s so they can keep a special UAW golf course.

Owned and operated by the United Auto Workers union, Black Lake is a public course that provides UAW members and retirees substantial discounts from the regular greens fees.

Auto workers pay UAW dues, which subsidizes golf facilities for UAW members. When the UAW asks for more money, they’re not really telling you it’s so they can keep their golf facility open.

Taxpayer money — to fund UAW golf courses. Is this what you had in mind when bailout talk began — funding a UAW golf facility?

While other (non UAW) workers have reductions in pay, layoffs and other problems, UAW leadership wants your taxpayer money to fund their golf course.
