Union leader, Jimmy Hoffa Jr, has an estimated net worth of $2 million. Hoffa gained his net worth as the General President of International of Brotherhood of Teamsters. Hoffa was also an attorney for the Teamsters from the late sixties to the early nineties. As a youngster, Hoffa would regularly attended Teamsters meetings and events with his father, the late Jimmy Hoffa and, on his 18th birthday, he became a Teamster member. The rest was history.

In 1996, Hoffa campaigned against the then-Teamster president, Ron Carey. This move was unsuccessful, as Carey won the election by a 52 per cent margin. However it was revealed, in 1997, that Carey won the 1996 electron by receiving illegal contributions of over $220,000. More shockingly, more than $75,000 of the union's assets was used to fund Carey's campaign. In light of the Carey sandal, another electron took place for a new president in 1998. This time Hoffa went head-to-head with the then-director of Teamsters Warehouse Division, Tom Leedham. After promising to unite the union, Hoffa won election which was considered by members as 'a chance to rebuild the union. As he promised to unite the union, Hoffa was under scrutiny. Hoffa was a man of his word as under his leadership, two hundred full-time positions were created as a result of Teamster asserting pressure on United Parcel Services (UPS).

Hoffa was subsequently re-elected in 2001 and 2006. He continued to keep his promise by dramatically improving the lives of US blue collar workers, resulting in better working conditions, better pension schemes – and better benefits and pay. As a leader who 'likes a good fight,' Hoffa went head-to-head with big organisations including Northwest Airlines and Continental Airlines. As Hoffa proved himself as a worthy leader when Champion Air Flight attendants signed their first-ever Teamster contact in 2001. For his remarkable work, Hoffa is regarded as advocate for better working conditions and fair trade. Furthermore, he has turned Teamster into a first-class political force – a force not to be messed with.
