The article states that the people they're talking about can't fill out a form such as a job application. If they don't have jobs they aren't in a union.

You can read I presume, but comprehension is important too.

I graduated with a B+ average and didn't know my multiplication tables above 6 and in a log book spelled "weapons" three different ways and none of them were right. I totally believe this report.

No doubt the majority used to all have jobs. Many of them in the auto industry. In fact 3 of them would do the job that 1 person could do cheaper and more efficiently.

And in any case it is humor.
