    Right?

    Looks like bullying to me. Of the grown up variety.

    The problem with exaggeration is that it tends to dilute or defeat your cause. According to the OP's source, information about the workers' vehicles or home addresses is not being disclosed, which makes your post essentially a falsehood and therefore your credibility zero. Given that, I doubt your fellow conservatives appreciate your contribution.

    Well, according to the Conservative definition they are "takers"; accepting union benefits without contributing to the cost of obtaining those benefits.

    Now were they needy then I could perhaps see giving them a pass on paying their fair share, but no case is made to that effect.

    Oh we all know how difficult that information is to come by, right ?

    Especially after a name has been publicly disclosed.

    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.
    What a shame. I did something I wish I hadn't done...I went to the Local 31 site and looked at the names. Then I did a Google search on a random name from the list in "Kansas" and I was able to get pages on information about that person. The statement from the National Right To Work Legal Defense Foundation is spot on. That man could easily be harassed, not only at work, but in his personal life.

    This is just so wrong.

    Since the lawyer provides no evidence of his unrelated claim we don't know if he is correct or not. I see a propaganda effort underway here, in that allegations unrelated to this specific issue are being piggybacked to further a meme, and based on at least one response in this thread a misleading meme. Again, this is a recurring issue with conservative claims -- they mix, match, and try to push beyond the matter at hand to the point of getting their followers to believe things are true that are, in fact, mere allegations at this point (personal information, slashed tires, homes vandalized, etc).

    With respect to the facts as reported, you have entered the Twilight Zone, so it is your post that makes no sense... but not to worry, you are not alone in this thread

    The normally higher union wage is a benefit, but I suspect you know this already. So, can you tell us what wage the scabs are working at, and compare it to the normal union wage at that facility?

    I won't expect an immediate reply, since I'm unsure of the transmission delay to and from the Twilight Zone
