The typical image of a union boss is a fat, slovenly slug who claims to work for the little guy but gets fat and sassy off the backs of the working man. Turns out it’s not exaggerated at all.
The New York Post first reported on the story, and their full account is pretty amazing. According to the Post, Mark Rosenthal expenses $1,400 in meals to the union every month, overorders pretty much every meal, and regularly crashes at 2pm every single day.
Rosenthal has fought back, claiming that it's normal for high powered officials to take "power naps".
“I’m 60 years old, so if I eat during my lunch hour and take a little medication, can’t I close my eyes?” he said.
A fellow union member said, “He eats lunch when he arrives at work at 2 p.m. Then, like clockwork, he goes to sleep with a cup of soda on the table and the straw in it."
You know it's bad when other members of the union are complaining.
