    Badgering banners here to stay - By Lesley Mitchell, Salt Lake Tribune
    The banners are the work of the California-based Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters, an affiliate of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America that includes Utah carpenters and drywallers. The group uses the banners to attract attention to companies they say employ non-union subcontractors that pay substandard wages and benefits. On any given week, the banners could be up at dozens of Utah businesses.

    These aren't active protests, by any means. There is no one on hand to explain to anyone who is interested why they are even there. In fact, the people holding the banners don't usually discuss why they are there.
