Indignation for Hire

|

The Las Vegas Weekly chats with six people protesting outside of a Wal-Mart. Turns out, none of them actually work there:

They're not union members; they're temp workers employed through Allied Forces/Labor Express by the union -- United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW). They're making $6 an hour, with no benefits; it's 104 F, and they're protesting the working conditions inside the new Wal-Mart grocery store.

"It don't make no sense, does it?" says James Greer, the line foreman and the only one who pulls down $8 an hour, as he ambles down the sidewalk, picket sign on shoulder, sweaty hat over sweaty gray hair, spitting sunflower seeds. "We're sacrificing for the people who work in there, and they don't even know it."
