Whose on The Picket Line?

So the unions are speaking out against Walmart.

Fine. That's their right. I don't listen to them anyway.

But who is walking their picket lines?

In at least one instance, the answer will not make you happy.

Real Union people should be furious about this sham of a picket line.

I just read that, it's a head shaker for sure. That has to be some sort of illegal doesn't it? Talk about having your strings pulled by a puppet master and they are foolish enough to allow it to happen to them.

The ironic part is that in the event the Democrats somehow got Wal-Mart unionized, they would blame the retailer's inevitable eventual price increases on the Republicans. Their propaganda base would walk around muttering some new bumper sticker phrase about how Bush is racist and doesn't care about the poor.

Have you all ever noticed how the media goes after huge companies that actually benefit America in many aspects? They attack them, scrutinize them and many of the blind followers tag along behind the media train with their knuckles dragging???

I think the media is too big for its britches anymore!

Oh I should mention that in my past I have been a member in good standing of the UAW, the CWA and at present the IBEW and I was seeing RED when I posted that article!

We have something in common, I was at one time a Physics Major, did a Semester or two teaching in a Jr College and now I work on a factory floor as an E Tech, a LOT more money and less headaches. :-)

In the spirit of full disclosure I have also been

A Union Shop Steward.
Worked in a Non-Union environment
Been a manager in a Non-Union environment.
And owned my own business for a while.

So I look at these issues from a variety of viewpoints and exeperience.

I never claimed to be the only educated shoprat, and at times I wish had entitled my blog An Educated Shoprat but what is done is done. Looks like you've been quite busy with your life.
