Honor UFCW's Amish Market Boycott? It depends what's on tomorrow's menu...

The United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW) staged a protest in New York City earlier today to announce a boycott of Amish Market [no relation to the Amish of horse and buggy fame].

After a Rosie O'Donnell impersonating politician spoke at the rally, avid union man, Tommy Keating proudly stated [at 1:15] that "the country should be run by unions."  [Apparently, Tommy doesn't watch the news?]

However, when asked if he would continue eating at the Amish Market (or would he support the UFCW's boycott), avid union man Tommy Keating declared:

“We’ll see. Depends on what’s on tomorrow's menu.”

It sounds as though, in a union town like New York, a boycott can be broken by serving a pastrami and rye.

And union bosses wonder why they can't keep members?
