"Shame on ........" banners in front of businesses, what's up?

I am confused by the "Same on ........ business" banners we see all over Albuquerque. I am very pro-labor, but I thought I remembered seeing or reading that these aren't real labor disputes, but people trying to get money from the business owner. I tried googling to see if I could find the original article about it, but couldn't find anything on the banners in ABQ. Does anyone know the real story here? I thought the loyal readers of Duke City Fix would know for sure!See More
