    See post 9, they did not such thing. And I'll ask you the same question I posed to the other FOX News basher, are you going to address the article or the topic or are you just here to bash FOX News because of a damning story about union activities?
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Can you show that there's any Scab List which lists "personal information" other than a dept # or where they work?

    So by your own logic, the poor and unemployed are taking advantage of the protections and benefits taxpayers provide without paying for them right? And that would make the parasites too right?

    By pointing out misleading info contained in the article, I *am* addressing the article.

    Both the poor and the unemployed pay taxes.

    Seriously. Using violence and the threat of violence to take money from others is wrong.....

    Unless you do it in a union.

    How does that make sense. ?

    I think you are thinking of "freeriders". People who come in and work are called "employees". People who do so while a union is busy throwing a fit about something are derisively called "scabs", but they aren't taking advantage of the Union's benefits, but rather of its stupidity and damage.

    The last line is bolded for emphasis. These are the tactics that unions use and it's plain wrong. I dare anyone to defend what the union is doing here with a straight face.
    And we make the mistake of thinking that bullying is just a problem in schools.

    This was actually worse than just posting a scab list. They went to the neighborhood where these people lived and did this.

    Having been low income, I can happily say that that is bogus - my tax rate was sharply negative for several years.

    Re: ‘Pressure tactics’: Unions publishing names of nonunion workers

    As unions continue to lose support with workers, they will continue to try and hold tighter on what little they have left. Such strong arm tactics aren't unusual - years ago when I was a CWA shop steward names of people who did not sign up for picket duty were confronted, pictures of scabs were taken and handed out at the picket line and yes, if possible their cars were targets of "accidents" if possible. Of course I was not told who or what exactly occurred and the union would NEVER sanction such retaliation ....

    There has always been a violent undertone to such tactics which is why picket crosser's are called scabs in the first place. They're just like everyone else with families, kids and bills to pay. Most places do nor require nor benefit from unions these days. It's an archaic labor method that's outlived it's usefulness in most cases. But I will admit there still may be areas where unions could be beneficial - I just don't know of them.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
