I saw them there earlier in the week too. don't know why. I was running an errand and when I went back by I was going to stop and ask but they were gone.

By reading the signs I'm assuming they feel they got cheated on wages. I'm guessing by looking at the two that they probably got fired and are pissed that they weren't paid a full week. That company doesn't have a union so why waste time an picket. If they spent half the time looking for another job instead of standing around maybe they wouldn't be unemployed.

Last week there were 5 or 6 holding signs. "Hire, steal, fire" was written on one sign.

I used that outfit a few years ago to put in concrete steps and a walk way leading from the street to my front door--I thought they did a good job-reasonable price--the Mayor (JBIII) stopped me one day and asked why I used that company---simple enough they were in the book and gave a satisfactory estimate-at the tome the company or the owner was in some sort of legal trouble---I also remember the bunny incident but no fault of the company--point is I used them and I thought they did a good job

a family member went there for a job. he had worked in home remodeling and in landscaping but told the owner he had not worked with foundations/cement. he was told it was ok and would be trained. he was hired. after he got on the job he was sent to do things he was not trained for and then berated for not knowing what he was doing. come the time to get paid, his check was shorted quite a bit. when he asked about it he was told he was wrong. he quit and walked out. the pay isn't enough to overlook working several hours for nothing and he has a family to support. he's a hard worker but not a fool. he was told by others that it was fairly common. I suspected that had something to do with the picketing but didn't know for sure. unfortunately, with so many people out of work there are always people who will fill the jobs so complaining in this situation won't do much good.

Interesting.... They should go to the labor dept. and file unless being paid another way by the company. I have seen Help wanted before at that place.

Obviously, you did not read the other posts."He must be a friend of the big DICK". Clark does seem to be honest.

What is wrong with those protesters? Unistress is begging for decent employees and they pay great. Tell those whining crybabies to drive a couple miles and they will be rewarded. Or have they all lost their licenses because of driving drunk? North Adams is a joke.
