Happy Thanksgiving, union bosses

This story really doesn't need much set-up, but to get you boys to take a look at it, I'll quote one paragraph:

"Since the United Food & Commercial Workers Local 876 called a strike Aug. 3 over an impasse on a new contract, motorists passing by daily on Gratiot honk horns and wave in support of men and women on a picket line outside the plant.

Those pickets, however, except for striking meat cutter Charles Shoebottom, are not company workers. They are hourly help hired by the union to man the line and carry signs. "
