State Sen. Kirk Dillard, a candidate for the Illinois Republican gubernatorial nomination, has received the endorsement of AFSME, a large public employee union. Dillard was grilled at a recent debate about his allegiance to unions. As if listening to union members were a bad thing. Union members might ask those critical of Dillard's union supporters if they were "beholden" to their big-business supporters. Why is union support seen as bad while business support is seen as good?
