    I believe scab is used toward union workers who do some kind of harm toward other union workers.

    Wrong: its a term for people who cross a picket line to work. i.e. someone who would rather work and get paid than be part of the union and strike. It only hurts "union workers" in the sense that it prevents the union from hurting the company. I support those who cross picket lines.

    That's BS. Unions would have you believe this. Unions are pretty much obsolete entities that only inflate the cost of the product or service of the industries they parasitize

    Crossing a picket most definitely hurts union members.

    Just to clarify, Wiggin earlier in this thread tried to make a distinction that these people that are being called "scabs" here are parasites.

    To be clear, all employees are parasites, but they are necessary to run the business.

    Union workers make more than they are worth and get benefits they did not earn so I don't see how anybody can defend them, other than the parasites taking what they did not earn.
    I am a business owner.....


    I don't think workers are parasites....I need them just as much as they need me.... it's codependency at it's finest.

    I think some unions are parasites, feeding off the workers while offering little or nothing in return for extorting their hard earned money, but that's more opinion than fact.

    It's not BS. Scab refers to union members who harm other members. Your opinion of unions has nothing to do with the term.

    that's like saying my superior resume hurts other applicants for a job or a seat at a law school

    If you won't work, someone else will. you only hurt yourself by striking especially when labor is mainly a global commodity these days

    wrong again
    Strikebreaker - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    the main definition

    A strikebreaker (sometimes derogatorily called a scab, blackleg, or knobstick) is a person who works despite an ongoing strike. Strikebreakers are usually individuals who are not employed by the company prior to the trade union dispute, but rather hired after or during the strike to keep the organization running.

    my great grandfather, my grandfather and then my father ran a heavy manufacturing business. It was unionized. in 1937 there was a massive strike. My grandfather hired non union workers to keep the company going. There was a picture of my grandfather standing by the gate of the company holding a thompson machine gun to protect the workers from union thugs. BTW FDR made striking against this business illegal a few years later since it was a deemed an "essential wartime industry"

    but the "Scabs" were non union workers
