"I couldn't make up the ending of the story:"

Unions hire homeless to picket non-union sites, because union members are too busy working.

The last line:
The union organizers allow the hired protesters to take two-minute breaks, Howards said, but dock their pay for the time off.
There are regularly picketers where I work, because an adjacent building is under construction by Metric Construction Co. They have signs that read "Metric doesn't comply to community standards". Yah! We're use British Units in these parts, assholes!

Across the street from one of the people I walk dogs for is a hotel. Outside the hotel has been an ongoing picket (sans people) against the hotel owner by a union. Involved is a 15 foot inflatable rat representing said owner. It's been there at least three months now and requires a continuously running pump to keep it inflated. Wierd.

Automated picketing with unemployed Chuck-E-Cheeze band members ... I LOVE IT!
