You muricans get ripped off, even by the people who are meant to be looking out for you.

Edit: to illustrate, my wife is a teacher and pays $12.70 a week (NZD, so that's more like $8 USD), and union action resulted in a 18.5% pay rise over two years (admittedly, it was way overdue).
Yep it's usually 10-15% of your weekly check that goes to the union.

Nowadays the biggest Unions are run like the Mafia.
