Shame on Labor Unions

Dear Diary,

From a 30,000-foot view, I agree with the concept of labor unions.  The agendas they have fought for in the past (e.g., wages, working conditions, employee rights, etc.) have greatly improved the quality of life for many individuals.

Labor unions in history... good.  Labor unions today... bad.

In South Orange County, CA we have these labor unions that "protest" by hiring sad-looking people to stand outside a business' building with signs that read:

Labor Dispute.  Shame on [...BEEP...][?].

The signs are so common around here, I believe most people pay no attention to them.  I, on the other hand, have a curse of noticing small things like this, and I can not stand these "sad-looking" people anymore.

Why are they standing there all day?  I know they are not members of the union.  For example, some 11th Floor-ees[?] and I once saw three college girls holding the sign up while they were studying.

And another thing.  Do those people think they are going to get paid?  Let's think about it.  The union is protesting because they did not get hired to build/move cubicles.  So that means the union is not making money.  How do they expect to get paid?

Babu Bhatt Babu Bhatt (and Mattrix) think that Labor Unions are "very, very bad men" (wagging his finger).
