    Is anybody surprised? Why would those hard working employees want to give a monthly portion of their paycheck to the Sierra Club when the Sierra Club is fighting hard against mining jobs in northeastern Minnesota? Congratulations Mesabi Nugget employees for standing up for economic freedom and your families. 1-1/2% per month can buy a lot of groceries and clothes for the kids, rather than fund a rabble rouser outfit like the Sierra Club which the Steelworkers leadership has chosen to join without allowing the members to vote on it.
