    Naaa, think I'll pass. Best of luck to Philly's workers in their showdown.

    That is the wildest ad I have ever seen. Some schmuck in college will probably think this is their lucky day and take them up on it only to be blackballed for the rest of their lives.
    I also enjoy the part about "out-of-town work" like that is the coolest thing ever. I enjoy a work trip every now and again, but generally road trips for work mean a whole lot of work and not a vacation like most people seem to think it is.

    Can't imagine taking a job under those circumstances.

    Maybe they can hire the people who went into Youngstown...
    I know people who scabbed there, then denied it. Maybe they can deny it again

    Forgot about that... was thinking more along the lines of an executive editor of a to-be-nameless Midwest mid-sized daily, currently in the seventh month of a sports editor search who was called on a landline in the Youngstown Vindicator. When asked to confirm he was in Youngstown, he refused. Then he was reminded that he was on the house phone and not his cell phone and was pretty well busted.

    I feel bad for most people in New Orleans affected by Katrina, but not those people which we speak of in this thread.

    What if you're a freelancer, and you don't work for them full-time?
    Not sure if that's an option ...
    Would you still be blackballed?
