I salute the members of Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union in their fight for health insurance and pension benefits but what really caught my eye in this article was the mention that "Customers have been crossing picket lines in large numbers"!!! Are you 'customers' nuts! You never, ever cross a picket line - no matter what for - no matter where.
If it weren't for unions we 'customers' wouldn't have a decent minimum wage, wouldn't have a 40 hour work week, wouldn't have workplace safety, women wouldn't have the vote, employers would still be using child labour, and much, much more.
The employer smiles every time a 'customer' crosses a picket line because s/he knows that you dear customer are stabbing yourself in the back.
