There is no low too low for the unions.
Via PJM’s Patrick Poole:
. . . After about an hour about 20 SEIU protesters arrived on the scene chanting “Boehner get us back to work” and claiming they were federal employees furloughed because of the shutdown.
In the video below these protesters were marching towards the press gaggle and I was asking them to show their federal IDs to prove they were in fact federal workers. No one wore their Federal Employee ID and none would provide it to prove their claim.
Then, remarkably, a guy carrying sign passed by wearing a McDonald’s employee shirt, which I noted. I then began asking them how much they had been paid to protest, at which point the guy wearing the McDonald’s shirt came back and admitted he had been paid $15 to attend the protest.
