Union Workers Protest Non-Union Contractors Remodeling the Toys ‘R’ Us in Cherry Hill

I drove by the Toys ‘R’ Us in Cherry Hill, NJ today on the way to work and spotted some protestors outside. Went out to shoot them and talk to them, and then some of the workers inside. Unfortunately, I was not allowed to shoot inside, and missed some good shots for it. I’ll try again in the future. Shot for the Courier Post.
Union picketers Monday next to a sign put up along Route 38 in Cherry Hill to protest outside workers brought in to remodel the nearby Toys 'R' Us store. Picketers from a range of labor unions complained that the workers were paid less than the standards for the Cherry Hill area and did not spend their money locally. "Most don't even seem like they're from our area here," said Michelle Daniels, sheet metal worker with the Local 19 union.
