The Union Is Hiring Non-Union Employees! What's Going On?

With the extremely high unemployment rate and no end in sight, skilled and non-skilled workers, seniors and college graduates are finding unusual work in the strangest places. And most of them have no idea what, why or who they are representing.

The Mid-Atlantic Regional Council of Carpenters is hiring  Nonunion Workers to protest work being done by nonunion carpenters! The reason being; it's difficult for union members to come out due to parking or something else.

The fake union protesters are being paid minimum wage ($8.25 per hour) to walk around with signs and sound off! George Eisner, the union's director of organization says the "extra feet help the union staff about 150 picket lines in DC and Baltimore each day."
Imagine the Union actually hiring NON-UNION workers to protest the hiring of non-union workers. It seems a bit contradictory to me!

People looking for jobs can go online and get a job as a paid activist, representing groups that are against offshore drilling and groups to support the Constitution of the United States. I do not think the job qualifications are very steep. Just about anyone will get hired.

Sounds crazy, but the trend is growing and most of the paid activists don't care what they are supporting or against, all they know is they are receiving an income.

One organization in Calif. will pay $10 per hour and up for Stand-in activists to to carry signs banning foam cups and plastic bags. (That's gotta be in S.F. I'll be whacko Nancy is all for it!)

The fall elections will be influenced by the Faith and Freedom Network in Bellevue, Wash. The group is seeking activists willing to work for $10 per hour to promote statewide candidates with Judeo-Christian values. Their job will require them to go door to door and meet in mass, hopefully drawing media attention.

A baseball fanatic from Chicago posted and ad on Craigslist offering to pay anyone who attended the Cubs opening day at Wrigley Stadium. Sorry folks this job no longer exists - Opening day was in April! The cause was to stop a huge sign that would block people's view of the stadium from high rises. There were only 50 people who showed up to get their signs.

Stephen Borlik, a recent college graduate found the available job opportunities discouraging and is now receiving $13/hr. working as a fund raiser for Care. To maintain his position with Care, he must meet a weekly quota of 2 new donors per day donating a minimum of $20 each.
Do the math if he only meets his daily quota of $40 and works an 8 hour shift he gets paid $104. How can Care, an antipoverty nonprofit organization
have any money to help the poor?

People are taking jobs like these because it is better than not working at all. The majority of us have encountered fundraisers and protesters like this before. I am shocked to think that I actually believed they were doing that because they believed in a cause and not for money.
Now that I think about it, when I would ask about their program most of them did not know very much about it and would hand me a brochure.

This has truly become a country of protesters and demonstrators. I remember helping my mother stuff envelopes and going door to door for the March of Dimes and various other organizations she volunteered for.
Where have all the compassionate people gone who would do these things for free because they believed in the cause?

I will continue to protest at Tea Parties because I believe in fighting for our Constitution and our Countries Freedom. You will never see a paid protester attend one of those!
True Patriots and Believers will never take money for the future of this Country.
Sadly I think the Far Left would go to that extreme to get what they want.
