Not even unions want union labor

The Las Vegas Weekly reports that the United Food and Commercial Workers union has hired day laborers, who receive $6 an hour and no benefits, to sweat in the hot Las Vegas sun protesting the working conditions inside the local air-conditioned Wal-Marts. The union accuses Wal-Mart of driving down wages (local Wal-Mart workers average $10.17 an hour) and failing to provide workers with free health insurance. Priceless.
