While there must be many unionists committed to improving members' pay and conditions, and there are certainly many Labor supporters convinced that Labor is the party of morality and compassion, it seems to be becoming obvioujs that at the top, the union movement is no more than a means to wealth and power for those savvy enough and with the forititude with withstand the climb upward.

Shorten, for example, has never worked in any of the trades represented (or misrepresented) by the AWU, yet he calls the shots for thousands of workers.
