Pretty much everything wrong, corrupt, and evil about unions — and how they will work against the best interest of their employers and common sense and decency to protect even the most vile union members.
Like former NFL player and New England Patriot’s TE Aaron Hernandez (and current orange jumpsuit wearing accused murderer).
The National Football League players union is battling on the Patriots organization on behalf of Hernandez for an $82K bonus they think Hernandez still deserves.
The former Pro Bowl tight end earned the money through a workout incentive program and was scheduled to receive the bonus August 1st, reports Fox sports. Then he murdered semi-pro linebacker Odin Lloyd, according to the district attorney’s office of Bristol County, Massachusetts. The Patriots released Hernandez immediately after he was arrested in late June.
The NFL Players Association is arguing that since the bonus was earned before Odin Lloyd was killed and before Hernandez was charged with anything, he should still get the money.
It’s like teachers unions who will fight tooth-and-nail to protect teachers from being fired no matter what they’ve done, up to and including sexually assaulting their students.
