As some of you may know I been on strike for the past 14 weeks out here in SoCal.  Over the weeks some people have slacked off (signing in/out then leaving, signing in at different time etc) and other people have compline (me being one of those who was complining since these slackers caused our pay to be cut to $75 a week).  This week a couple of us started to watch those slackers more closely and it  was bought to the Union's attention.   This caused those people to lose the  pay which they didn't deserve in the first place.  Now half our picket line seems to want to cross a line and half of those people seem to hate me personally.  Someone crossed my name off of a shift I did work which could cause me to lose my paycheck this week.  A guy also was starting s*** with me trying to get in a fight.  So now I have have to really find a new job since my coworkers don't like me, some more then others.  This sucks.... :P

Tell them if they dont repair the situation, that you will be taking hostages.

I'd be curious to hear too, and also, how is morale and getting back to work after such a long fiasco?
