OH MAN.......this is a hoot...links in article

SNIP:
LaborUnionReport
You may recall that there has been an e-strike going on at the Huffington Post since March. In union parlance, a strike means, if you honor unions, you should not cross a picket line—even an e-picket line.



According to the Newspaper Guild (part of the Communications Workers of America):
The Newspaper Guild

In addition, we are asking that our members and all supporters of fair and equitable compensation for journalists join us in shining a light on the unprofessional and unethical practices of this company.

Just as we would ask writers to stand fast and not cross a physical picket line, we ask that they honor this electronic picket line.

As a reminder, the company with the “unprofessional and unethical practices” that the union is referring is Huffington Post—Arianna Huffington’s website that AOL purchased in a $315 million boondoggle—you know, the one that “unfairly” exploits bloggers and children as young as 13.


However, like the robber baron’s of yesteryear, Huffington apparently does not care.

And, she said, there are plenty of people willing to take their place if they do.

“The idea of going on strike when no one really notices,” Huffington said. “Go ahead, go on strike.”
:lol:
