THIS.

I'm in the fitters union. I've had an NRA sticker on my hardhat for almost a year now and have had several people see it and start conversations with me about guns. From talking to guys on jobsites, I believe that most union members aren't loyal to their union (there are a few that are though). They don't vote pro-union and disregard the political propaganda that the unions spew out. They see unions as a means to an end, which ultimately is taking care of their family.
