Want To Be A Scab, Go Write for the Santa Barbara News Press

I couldn’t pass up this bit of Santa Barbara news after being up there this weekend.  The Santa Barbara News Press has a bit of an internal struggle going on, as the employees voted to unionize several months ago, and the owner, Wendy McCaw refuses to accept the new employee conditions or enter into negotiations.  Mass layoffs have occurred in the past few months, as staged pickets and sign holders have included current employees, who have been layed off as well.  Now’s the time to support these freedom writers, or get a job working for the SB News Press, however you feel inclined.

    i went by the protest rally yesterday. there were a lot of people there to support the cause, although, their repetitive chants could use a little help. “mccaw, obey the law!” was ok, but i was a little disappointed with “we miss you in the news room!” i doubt that one will get their point across.

    Don’t be bitter at the group’s token hobo just because you happen to be the token homo.
