On Working Conditions - Yours or Theirs

Interesting story here about the United Food and Commercial Workers union hiring temps to picket in front of a Wal-Mart store in Henderson, Nevada. I also heard the current Hoffa (head of Teamsters) hollering on NPR last night that unions desperately needed to "organize Wal-Mart."

Unions aren't run by dumb people. Union leaders know there's a heck of a lot of dues that could be paid by Wal-Mart's employees. Of which, according to this page, Wal-Mart currently has 1.7 million. That's a lot of donuts.

But unions do appear to be willing to pay remarkably low wages for some of the jobs they hire people to do. (Lower than Wal-Mart's starting pay, so it seems.)

I think I'll deposit 200 of the donuts and keep the other 50 donuts.
