Unions using underpaid temp workers to protest Walmart

Unions have been anti-Walmart since Walmart is a non-unionized company. So in various areas unions have been hiring temp workers and paying them $6 an hour (and no benefits) to picket outside Walmart. Obviously, the unions know better than to waste money hiring union labor. John Hawkins at Right Wing News has a good run down and a link to another article on this subject. This excerpt sums up the situation:
Here we have a union picketing Wal-Mart. Yet, the union isn't using union labor for their picketing, because it's too expensive. Moreover, the union accuses Wal-Mart of having poor working conditions & pay. Yet, it's obvious that the conditions & pay at the Wal-Mart are far better than what the union is providing for the temps.

So, the United Food and Commercial Workers union wants to pay the least amount of money they can to get a job done. But then, when Wal-Mart does the same thing, the UFCW cries foul. Why? Because the unions and the Democrats want a slice of that pie.

How would that work?

Wal-Mart charges YOU more to buy things. Then they take that extra money they get from YOU to pay their unionized workers more. The workers then pay their unions. Then the unions contribute huge sums of money and manpower to Democrats who in turn favor laws that put more money in the pockets of the unions.

That's what these assaults on Wal-Mart we've seen of late are really all about.
The left wants you to think Walmart is evil. What they are is inexpensive. Last Saturday, before Notre Dame shellacked Michigan, I stopped in Walmart and bought a quality Notre Dame ballcap for $5. Good ballcaps can run as much as $20.
