Not-So-Special K

kellogg's strikeI'm a pro-union kind of guy, because unions gave us the middle class and perks like the 40-hour week. I also loves me some Frosted Flakes. So it peeves me to hear that Kellogg's, the "Snap, Crackle, Pop" guys, aren't being so Grrrrrrr-reat to its unions thse days. In fact, they've kicked out their union workers in Memphis and brought in scabs to replace them. (Management refers to this as "The Special K Project") The company has also off-shored about 60 million pounds of cereal processing to Mexico, in plants where the workers are forced to live in compounds near the plant. Some workers are reportedly kidnap victims of cartels.
