You run an auto repair shop. I come to your garage and ask you to fix my car. Meanwhile, you cut the pay of your mechanics by 10% and have them work in a garage that has poor lighting and tools in disrepair. Rather than quitting and looking for work elsewhere, they come to my home and shove me up against my car, demanding that I tell you to pay them more or I should take my business to a different garage. I call the police to have the mechanics arrested for assault.
The mechanics call a local TV station, stand before a camera and say "We're drawing attention to this to tell these car owners like this gentleman that they need to intercede with the auto repair shops and tell them to settle this before it gets to a strike."
Do they appear on TV?
Why yes, yes they do
No arrests were reported.
