    Eat the Rich - BY MATT DAVIS, The Portland Mercury, OR
    Local unions have a new weapon in the fight against contractors who hire low-wage, non-union employees for construction jobs. That weapon: free hot dogs.

    Last Thursday, September 7, about 300 people - many of them homeless, along with others showing up to support the cause - crowded around the corner of SW 11th and Clay as workers from the Pacific Northwest Region Council of Carpenters (PNWRCC) union gave out 500 hot dogs with a choice of relish, ketchup, or spicy mustard.
