Unions Hiring “Scabs”

It has been reported the Construction Unions in Washington and several other cities have begun hiring the unemployed and the homeless to picket sites that are non- union working sites.  They are paying the “scabs ” minimum wage or $8.00/ Hour.

Do you find it ironic that they cannot get their membership to do the picketing. As you are aware the Construction Industry is one of the highest hit in unemployment. In some states it is as high as 22%.  They cannot ge their membership to work for 8.00 an hour as they make more from unemployment.

The union leadership is constantly fighting for wages from $25 to 40.00 per hour stating their people need it to live. Yet they will not pay more than $8.00/ hour for non-union people to replace their workers.

Ironic and somewhat hypocritical is it not?

    Did you have a source for this? Hypocrisy is one of my biggest pet peeves, and if documented, this ought to be telling.
