Default Outsourcing the Picket Line

Outsourcing the Picket Line
Carpenters Union Hires Homeless to Stage Protests
By Keith L. Alexander, Washington Post Staff Writer

The picketers marching in a circle in front of a downtown Washington office building chanting about low wages do not seem fully focused on their message.
Many have arrived with large suitcases or bags holding their belongings, which they keep in sight. Several are smoking cigarettes. One works a crossword puzzle. Another bangs a tambourine, while several drum on large white buckets. Some of the men walking the line call out to passing women, "Hey, baby." A few picketers gyrate and dance while chanting: "What do we want? Fair wages. When do we want them? Now."
Although their placards identify the picketers as being with the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council of Carpenters, they are not union members.
They're hired feet, or, as the union calls them, temporary workers, paid $8 an hour to picket. Many were recruited from homeless shelters or transitional houses. Several have recently been released from prison. Others are between jobs.
"It's about the cash," said Tina Shaw, 44, who lives in a House of Ruth women's shelter and has walked the line at various sites. "We're against low wages, but I'm here for the cash." ....source

Sounds familiar....

Before there was controversy whether Ershad was learning from Clinton or Vice Versa. Now this….hmmm ...who is learning from whom?

3. Corrupt politicians who find religion at opportune times and promise to deliver the world to the general public.
4. Destroy homegrown industry by accomodating cheap foreign imports.

1. Bush Sr. > Bush Jr.
2. Bill Clinton > Hillary Clinton

There's your answer. Started with the British stealing our natural/other resources, continues with the US congress 'leaders' our political blemishes. When will it stop ?

ONe more - Ershad had his 'original poems' and alleged female encounters, Clinton had his saxophone and alleged female encounters.
