Carpenters Protest Showroom Work

Union members object to choice of workers for Mercedes-Benz expansion.

Members of the carpenters' union protested Thursday outside Mercedes-Benz of Huntington.

The union members said the work of expanding the showroom and other parts of the business was being done by non-union workers.

A spokesman for Mercedes-Benz said the crews were hired by a contractor and not the dealership.

I'm not talking about the "retired" union lackeys. I am talking about active union carpenters. I see them daily in action. They have zero shame.

Jim, you are either very naive or just another lazy union slug. Work hard, think hard and you will earn a living. Unions were at one time a necessity but now they are destroying this country. Why are all the jobs being exported to other countries? It's because unions have forced employers to seek a better alternative.

Check out what unions have done to the NYC transit system. It's a disaster.

I though the conversation was about construction in Huntingtion,not in other countries. In Huntingtion illegals are doing the jobs for cash & not paying Taxes.
