I believe in workers right to organize. I'm not starting another boring thread to argue over that. I has a question. 1. Why are scabs universally hated? I understand why the union workers wouldn't like them; they are taking union jobs. But why do non union people look down on replacement workers? A job is open. The person hired to do it has said he or she is on strike. Shouldn't I as a business owner have the right to fill it with anyone of my choosing? I would have no moral problem with working in place of someone who is on strike. (I don't know the laws either) 2. What's this union togetherness where you don't cross a picket line if another union is on strike? Did any of you union people stop going to movies when the movie people were on strike? Did you stop driving your Ford or Chevy when the automakers went on strike? It seems like they only do it if it makes a lot of publicity.
