From my friends at CEI, a new video capturing Big Labor hypocrisy at work:

Should labor unions pay their protesters the wages and benefits that the unions demand of other employers? CEI labor policy attorney Vincent Vernuccio crashed a union protest in Washington, DC this week and questioned several people involved in the protest. The protestors – hired by a union, the Mid-Atlantic Region of Carpenters – appeared to not be compensated with the level of wages and benefits that the union itself demands of other employers – the protestors evidently lacked health insurance, for example (see 3:52).

Nor is it clear the protestors were union members (see 2:59). So, how could they even hope to benefit from any prospective wage or benefit concessions won from the business targeted by the protest? No one could (or would?) say what local union chapter they belonged to and seemed to even be confused by the question (see 1:28).

Watch:

Always look for the double-talking union label.
