The median salary for Federally employed air traffic controllers right now is $109k per year--they start around $63k, top out around $150k. They get between 13 and 26 days of vacation a year and get health and life insurance. I am a little slow, so I'd appreciate it if someone could explain where "income equality" figures in there?

The fact of the matter is that unskilled workers who work for poverty wages haven't really received much help from mainstream unions who seem more concerned with preserving and extending their own entitlements that the whole "in unity there is strength" thing.
