I’m pretty sure this was the plot of an episode of the A-Team. The only difference is that in real life the union boss is named Balzano instead of Cincaid, and instead of roughing up the boy scout and his grandma they’re filing a city grievance…. and of course the matter won’t be resolved with lots of unnecessary explosions, machine guns fired haphazardly at the ground, and jeeps flipping over.

Seriously though, I’m not sure a story could be conceived of that would make the SEIU look worse. The only headline that could possibly make unions seem more greedy and against the best interest of society would be something like “Union Priests on Strike Picket Local Hospice to Prevent ‘Scabs’ From Delivering Last Rites”.
