Unionizing Bums
« on: June 29, 2005, 04:15:13 PM »
Is this possible?  Could I go to a big city and unite enough panhandlers with cheap basic healthcare, free booze, cheap shelter, and take like $2.00 a day from each of them.  2000 bums * 2.00 a day?  Would this be legal?  Could it be done?  I'm serious any suggestions would be appreciated.

Why couldn't you?

You're not really unionizing them, there is no one to bargain with for a contract.  A union would need to be recognized as the exclusive negotiator with someone.

You'd be creating a bum club, or crew, not a union.

True, although the Teamsters is quite similar from what I hear.
