Scab Pride

I posted the following to the Libertarian Alliance Forum today:

Some years ago, when I worked as a non-unionized employee in publishing companies, I was told more than once that I was benefiting from the union chapel's efforts in negotiating the annual in-house pay increases. At the time I couldn't see through this, and felt duly guilty, while taking the money.

It was only much later that I realized that the union acted in its self-interest by insisting that its potential competitors (including freelances like me) should have their rates raised at the same time as those of union employees. I owed the union nothing.

The right of the non-unionized to undercut their unionized competitors is a sacred right. Let's organize Scab Pride Day.
