On Becoming a Replacement Worker: Financial Need in Relation to Vacated Positions, Strike Publicity, Number of Strikers, and Threat of Violence
Contextual and individual influences on the individual's decision to become a replacement worker during a strike were tested in a multilevel model. Regression parameters from within-person analyses indicated that strike publicity, number of strikers, and threat of violence influenced individual judgment policies about willingness to cross a picket line to accept a position. Using these parameters as outcome variables, between-person analyses indicated stronger (negative) relationships between threat of violence and willingness to cross for those with low financial need than for those with high need.
