A fat lot of good he’s doing his workers.
An executive of New York City’s largest union of blue-collar public employees spends a whole lot more time sleeping at his desk than fighting for the working man, according to a New York Post expose.
And he’s making $156,000 a year in union-dues paid salary to do it!
According to the Post, Mark Rosenthal is a 400-lb. president of District Council 37’s Local 983. After arriving late to the office, he eats a big lunch, naps for a while at his desk, then cuts out early to beat the afternoon rush.
“He’s usually out by 4 p.m. after being at the office two hours,” Marvin Robbins, a union vice president, told the Post.
Granted, there’s probably union politics at work in a vice president ratting to the press about his president, but other union officials
told much the same story, according to the Post.
Rosenthal even uses a “union business” expense account to write off some of his eating bills, board members told the Post.
Rosenthal, however, told the Post he takes “power naps” he needs during “12-14 hour days.”
Nice work if you can get it.
