Fat cat union boss caught sleeping on the job

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.

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.

      Mike, nobody's attacking unions, just a schlep who charges laborers union dues from their hard-earned pay and then sleeps on the job while they carry his fat ass…amazing that as a liberal you are missing the real point then, again, it's probably part of why this country is such a mess….wah, wah, wah…

    Who drives him to work (and would he even be able to fit into the back seat of a regular car)? Then, who pays for this perk?

    I am by no means an authority on sleep, but I heard or read that morbidly obese people miss going through the stages of restful sleep because fat accumulates around their windpipe and interfere with their breathing. Therefore, they can't get a good nights sleep and behave like the union boss above in the photo.
