The Mid-Atlantic Regional Council of Carpenters is paying unemployed non-union workers to protest outside Washington, D.C., office buildings, telling the Wall Street Journal that it's sometimes too difficult to get its own people to come downtown to demonstrate.
WSJ reports that the carpenters union has been hiring people -- many of whom have no ideology on an issue -- to to walk picket lines, chant and generally sound off each day at around 150 picket lines in the District of Columbia and Baltimore.
"For a lot of our members, it's really difficult to have them come out, either because of parking or something else," Vincente Garcia, a union representative supervising the picketing, told the newspaper.

Look prionace glauca, I know you have been programmed to hate the evil union thugs, blah, blah, blah, but if it weren't for unions you and all you kids would be working 15 hour days, 7 days a week, in unsafe conditions, with no vacations and for 20 bucks a week. Unions also negotiated for employers supplying things like health insurance, and retirement. Those damn evil thugs, right?

I feel sorry for people in unions. Joining a union or working for the government is like you have no faith in yourself to fend for you and your family. It is really sad.
