The top ten reasons for crossing a picket line.
10. I thought, since I voted against the strike, that decision didn’t apply to me.
9. I needed the money and couldn’t possibly support my family and sick mother on $50 per day
8. I’m exercising my right to free speech; I’m a “conscientious objector” to union tyranny.
7. I figured that, unless I stayed on the job, the entire nuclear industry would collapse
6. I have a medical condition that makes it impossible for me to picket
5. My personal deity told me I should cross the picket line (may also be “the voices” in the case of atheists)
4. I fell asleep while driving to work, realized that I’d accidentally crossed the picket line and decided to stay
3. I want to become a manager so I’m demonstrating my ability to delegate responsibility
2. To get to the other side…
And last but not least, the number one reason to cross the picket line (drum roll please):
1. My manager told me I’d be welcomed with open arms and I have low self-esteem
