In Indiana, a union is looking to hire some protesters for astroturfing. Don’t look for the union label, though.

It’s safe to assume it’s a non-union gig because it only pays 25 cents more than Indiana’s minimum wage.

Non-union protest labor needs to organize in order to be paid a living wage from the people who claim to be fighting for the working man.

    Just like the Michigan Carpenter's Union in Grand Rapids – they went to the local homeless shelter to hire their protesters. Funny thing was – the poor protesters were protesting against a company that is a major contributor to the very shelter they were living in. Talk about bite the hand that feeds ya!!!

    And last summer that same union did the same thing in Lansing. They were protesting a proposed building in which one of the occupants was going to be the United Way. So being the compassionate and responsible union that they are – they called for a boycott of donations to United Way – who generously gives to the homeless shelter where they hired the protesters.

    As for the teachers union – what a great job Doug and MM are doing on exposing the NEA and the state teacher unions. If I hear one more lib say it's for the kids?!?!?!

    Thanks Nanny!

    It seems like the unions would even cringe at the hypocrisy, but obviously they're more than capable of overlooking it.

    The union worm is starting to squirm! The head of DHS here in Michigan just shut down the unions collecting dues from private day care workers!!! Way to go Maura Corrigan!!!

    Sweeeet !

    My little town is home to a paper mill that has been the region`s largest employer for 100 years, unionized in the mid 60s and employed 2500 ish folk . The mill has been sold I think 3 times now, cut its workforce by 1,000, and cut its product line to 3 types of paper and indirectly caused the exodus of half the town`s population ! While much of the town`s biz has been hurt by the mall mentality, I don`t dismiss the role the union has played ! Their entitlement mentality is disgusting.

    A mill boss was asked (after the mill was unionized) how many people work there ? He answered, "About half of them !"

    It`s been over 30 yrs. since anyone has told me they like their job there !
