Video: “The Daily Show” humiliates union for using … non-union picketers

posted at 3:00 pm on September 26, 2010 by Allahpundit

It’s almost a week old but so brutal that we can’t let it pass unposted (and no, I’m not saying that because of this). What’s more painful here, the UFCW rep’s palpable discomfort in admitting that they’re paying people to walk the line for them or the fact that it took “The Daily Show” to bring the hypocrisy to national attention? Professional centrist John Avlon argued yesterday that political media polarization between right and left has created a vacuum in the middle for Stewart and Colbert to fill, but that’s neither exactly true nor the reason why this clip is as gratifying as it is. S&C may be more centrist than MSNBC but they’re reliably (if not exclusively) liberal, of course; the reason they’re popular is because they’re usually more effective at making the left’s points than most lefties are. Hence the astonishment at watching them go after a progressive sacred cow. That’s no great shakes for a true centrist — e.g., Mickey Kaus rails endlessly about union influence over Democrats — but from a liberal outfit it’s surprising.

Incidentally, I know this story about non-union picketers got some play in the blogosphere before this aired, but I can’t remember where it originated. I thought maybe it was with Gateway Pundit or one of Breitbart’s sites, but I can’t remember. If anyone knows, please e-mail and I’ll give credit.

Update: Thanks for the e-mail replies. Looks like Warner Todd Huston was writing about this back in July and then, via Breitbart, CEI did a video piece about it in August.

When SAG was on strike last time, they offered a SAG card to anyone who would come down and picket.

Were the pseudo-picketers paid minimum wage, or union wages? Did they get health care coverage? Pension benefits?

The union could be a little more honest and just say they want the initiation fees, the union dues and credit for Wal-Mart’s success. They really do not care about the working conditions, the wages (except the part they get), or the benefits of the employees.

fourdeucer on September 26, 2010 at 3:23 PM

The total lack of honesty coupled with a consistent hypocrisy defines today’s Left.

Even though the truth has been a casualty for big labor and their media acolytes for decades, the fact that these hired picketers haven’t gotten major media play is a both a disgrace and definitive proof that the MSM isn’t about “news” it’s about propaganda and disinformation.

Ya, Brian Williams wishes he had more freedom, RIIIGHT!

Cindy Munfords hubby sent this to me earlier this morning. I was frankly surprised at the way they went after them. The Union Boss was clueless that they were the subject of a hit piece. I suppose when he heard “Daily Show”, he assumed the kid gloves were going to be used.

Sekhmet on September 26, 2010 at 3:36 PM

What’s even more devastating is just how little these union people are challenged, and when they are, they’re at a complete loss for words because they can’t spin (lie) hard facts. Why aren’t they investigated and challenged more by journalists? Where are the investigations?

While attending a university in CA, I came across a union rep from the student tutoring center. Apparently the union found a way to give free tuition to students who work as tutors. I was flabbergasted. When I challenged the union rep on why his union’s thinking is why CA is so screwed up financially, he resorted to talking points to try and shut me down. He also admitted to being a Marxist (with little provocation I might add). What a parasite.

This union thug is just a small indicator of why California is going to continue to be financially devastated for years to come. As long as Democrats keep getting elected to state and local governments, the lies perpetuated by Progressives and Socialists will prevail all the way down the financial spiral into oblivion.

I will be moving out of the state next year to find a teaching job elsewhere. Ironic, since I think most others who either have moved out or are planning to do so are producers of wealth. Most of those who stay or move in are not.

I love this WalMart stuff! Worked with some people that were anti-WalMart. I asked this woman why she hated Walmart and she snapped “They’re anti-union!” I respond, “Why the heck should I care whether they’re anti-union! They’re pro-customer!”

What the heck is it about these people who hate WalMart!? It’s insane! I listened to some trucker call in on Rush a few years back. He’s blasting WalMart for destroying mom and pop stores. Said he’s seen all the devastation inflicted on these small towns by WalMarts! I’m yelling at the freaking radio, “Hey you moron! Have you ever seen any desolate train stations in some of these small towns? Guess who put the railroad industry out of business! The trucking industry!”

And what is so sacred about mom and pop stores! Why is it my responsibility to ensure they stay in business?! What!? It’s my duty to pay more for my groceries, socks and shaving cream to ensure mom and pop stores across the country can keep raking it in?! I must pay more for my hammer so a union worker can eat better food than I do?
My money is just as valuable to me as it is to some mom and pop store or some union worker!
And as for freaking greed and profits! Everybody loves profit! I don’t care if you are making minimum wage or are a union worker! If you’ve got money left over after paying for basic food, rent, water, heat and electric you’ve just made a profit! Maybe you ought to give it back if you hate profits so much you greedy scumbag!

The average, full-time hourly wage for Walmart stores is $11.75 and is usually higher in urban areas. The associates can receive performance-based bonuses. This doesn’t sound like a lot, but the retail industry is a low wage industry in general. The pay and benefits from Walmart are higher than the industry standard.
It is also a large corporation with lots of different job opportunities for people who are willing to work for it. They employe; managers, accountants, lawyers, IT professionals, the list is almost endless. So why does every one pick on Walmart? They’re a great business model to emulate.

mjbrooks3 on September 26, 2010 at 4:37 PM

I didn’t watch the vid, but someone mentioned WalMart.

A few years ago, a union hired some non-union people to picket a WalMar to protest WalMart’s low wages.

The union paid the non-union picketers less than WalMart was paying their people.

It’s about power not money.

I think this is where Stewart and Stossel have a weird alignment.

On one hand, Stewart points out the blatant hypocrisy of the Unions, and on the other hand, Stossel points out the pure corruption of the Unions.

What does to mean to you and me?

If non-union companies like Walmart organize, prices of goods and services will undoubtedly rise. It will stagnate job growth.

Unions only help Union Bosses, not the workers. The Union bosses will reap the benefits of confiscatory union membership dues, while forcing price increases on goods and services to pay for union salaries.

No one wins in this deal.

Kini on September 26, 2010 at 5:00 PM

David Gregory used the hard-hitting political program (/s) “The Daily Show” to put Mike Pence on the defensive re the GOP’s “Pledge to America”. Do these talking heads have any depth to their interviews? Pence rebutted Gregory with a number of facts and details, yet Gregory was playing an adversarial role throughout. He did not challenge the Dem representative for his generic response at all.

Bob Schieffer tried to put Marco Rubio on the spot with some gotcha questions, too, re Social Security and Arizona’s illegal immigration law.

Both Pence and Rubio were well-prepared and assertive in their reponses in order to set the record straight. Well done!

Locally the construction unions have hired ILLEGAL ALIENS to picket a recently COMPLETED animal hospital. It’s up, it’s built, it’s finished. But the hospital owners contracted out to the lowest bidder, who did not use UNION labor (go figure). So now there are ILLEGALS out front, protesting….at minimum wage and no benefits.

OT (again!): A freeper posted the transcript of D’Ohermann’s interview with Michael the Moore-on from Friday’s Countdown program, where both are crying in their beer that there were not ticker tape parades over the rollout of ObaMaoCare. They bleat in hyperbole about how the sky will fall when the Republicans regain control in Congress. Moore-on, who claims that there are 50 members in the Progressive caucus, says that hapless Americans will be “in a lumberyard” where Republicans will be affixing them to a cross”.

The transcript is so incoherently filled with babble and half-thoughts that it is painful to read. And this is supposed to be hard-hitting interview analysis? Buffalo Bob did better with Clarabelle the Clown.

“they hired the picketers again?”
“Crap, call the temp agency and have them send some more people.”
“I did, but they say the don’t have anyone else to send”
“Shit, I guess we’ll have to send our own people.’
” Hell we can’t do that, It would cost too much.”
