Union Hires Nonunion Pickets To Protest Hiring of Nonunion Help

If you are a union, you are unhappy with a business and your members are to lazy and spoiled to picket, what do you do? The answer is shocking. Unions are hiring nonunion members at minimum wage with no benefits to walk picket lines.
WASHINGTON—Billy Raye, a 51-year-old unemployed bike courier, is looking for work.

Fortunately for him, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council of Carpenters is seeking paid demonstrators to march and chant in its current picket line outside the McPherson Building, an office complex here where the council says work is being done with nonunion labor.

"For a lot of our members, it's really difficult to have them come out, either because of parking or something else," explains Vincente Garcia, a union representative who is supervising the picketing.

So instead, the union...

This gives Americans something new to consider next time they are trying to decide whether they will honor a picket line.
