Put the actual negotiation/contract issue aside here and consider that this is what unionistas and their apologists consider to be perfectly acceptable and “civilized” behavior on a daily basis. Ridiculous.
Their beef is that they’ve been going to work without a new labor contract signed for almost two years. That, I guess, is enough justification in their minds in order to harass and verbally abuse innocent bystanders.
Those opposing them, on the other hand, are simply handing out cards saying thank you for continuing to support the Cosmopolitan hotel and the Las Vegas economy. Love it! Outclassed and outwitted.
I’ve seen these protests up on the bridge to the Cosmo but I have yet to walk through them. After seeing this video, I think I’m not only going to, but I’m going to stay for three nights at the hotel as well, and be sure every morning to come down in front of those idiots with food in one hand, and a stack of bills in the other and talk about how awesome my experience has been at the hotel.
And as for their contract? I don’t have one at my job, but guess what, I’m doing just fine without it.
Two final thoughts on this:
1) These people in the protest line must not be any good at their job. If they were, their employees would want them working instead of standing outside with a protest sign.
2) There’s a smarter and more effective way to get the results they’re after with their employer, but they’ll never pull their head enough out of their own butt in order to see it.
