Manhattan Construction Workers to OWS Protesters: "Get a Job!"


"...After tearing through a midtown Manhattan tour past a slew of big corporate offices, the noisy chants of the occupiers were interrupted on West 46th Street by a group of hard-hats not in the mood for populist rabble-rousing.

Whereas the OWS crowd proclaimed 'we are the 99 Percent' and 'banks got bailed out, we got sold out,' a band of construction workers delivered chants of their own.

'Get-a-job! Get-a-job!' several workers atop a work site repeatedly hollered..."


Message to union leadership:  You are backing the wrong horse.

That was definitely NOT the voice of union leaders speaking yesterday to the Occupy Wall Street freeloading and whining trust fund babies, those shouting, "Get a job you bums!" were instead the voices of the membership itself, i.e., hard-working New Yorkers who speak for themselves. 

Knowing our construction workers, I can assure you that many shouted a heck of a lot worse.
