On my way to work yesterday morning, I drove past the new Walgreen's store going up in my neighborhood. It was being picketed, by people with pre-printed sign's stating "The work being done at this location by Tom's Painting(the name was paper taped over the pre-printed name) is being done by employees with substandard wages and benefits."
What an industry. Making signs to help gainfully employed people whine about their employment not being gainful enough in a recession.
The picketer are nothing but greedy extortionists. Wait until Walgreen's schedules their grand opening, then stop working because you want a raise. Go to hell. I hope Tom hires college students to replace you. You took the job because the wage and benefits met your needs, now, when you think you have your employer by the balls, you're on strike? FOAD.
