UNION MEMBERS OUTRAGED After White House Hires Non-Union Crew For Obama’s Birthday Bash by Jim Hoft 3 Aug 2011 post a comment Share This: Somebody's Having a Birthday Party and You're Not Invited That is, if you belong to a union. In case you live under a rock and haven't heard, Barack Obama turns 50 today. And, the place to be tonight is the Aragon. The party starts at 7:00. But don't bother to show up if you're a union member. The White House hired a non-union crew for the event tonight. A confidential and trusted union source contacted me today to report that the crews called in to work Obama's birthday bash are non-union. Union members are OUTRAGED that Obama would turn his back on them. Curiously, my source added that the day rate is actually higher for the non-union members to do the work. It's not a money issue. What gives? More to come... Check back here and here.
