Union Hires Non-Union

The other day I saw this excellent video on unions at The Daily Show:

If you don't care to click through, the story is about a union that is doing such a good job placing its workers that it can't spare any workers for its picket-line protest of Walmart.

What's a union to do in a situation like this? They hire temporary workers at minimum wage for part-time jobs with no benefits. I'm sure these temporary workers were happy to have a job, just like the Walmart workers on the other side of the picket line.
