Crossing the Pickett line

I completely understand why Vale workers are striking, but here’s the thing. I work on the sites, I am not unionized and currently trying to figure out how I’m going to pay the bills while the strike is ongoing.

If my boss asks me to cross the Pickett line I’m going to do it. I don’t know many that would say no. I have kids, I can’t go out of town to work. I don’t want to turn down going over the Pickett line and not be able to pay my bills/lose my job after this is all over.

Will I be looked down upon for working my regular job during the strike?

    This is something I’ve often wondered: How do NDP supporters reconcile the fact that Medicare was achieved by defeating the doctors’ strike in Saskatchewan and using so many of the classic strike-breaking tactics they would decry from anyone else? Woodrow Lloyd and Tommy Douglas even brought in scab doctors! (And I’m not talking about dermatologists.)

    These guys on “strike” are working side jobs building decks, fences, garages etc…. Do what YOU gotta do man and don’t look back!
