The annoying practice of begging people for something, usually money. Usually when someone scabs they will repeatedly ask a passer by (especally someone they know by name) for the thing they are after until they give in.
I want chocolate. I think I'll start scabbing for money to buy some.

A worker, often temporary, who crosses a strikers' picket line, going to work in place of the strikers.
The scabs had their cars egged when they arrived at the factory.

Someone willing to take a striking workers job because they couldnt have got the job otherwise.They care about no-one but themselves,have allegiance to no-one,including who they work for, and cannot see long term. They will take almost any abuse from their employer, and dont give a whit about their fellow workers.This is the true makeup of a scab.

The term scab is a derogatory term used to refer to people who continue to work when trade unionists go on strike action.
By crossing the picketline and working for the company, those dirty scabs took money out of the union workers pocket.

Mom: Don't peel off that scab. Like a band-aid, it will fall off eventually.

Any person (this means you Marilyn) who crosses a Union picket line.
Someone who wears a Union support shirt at work before the strike, then crosses the first day. Drives by striking workers without a glance. Then when all have gone home later go's outside and picks up a strike sign, and pretends she's on strike. Doing this; she go's down to the Union hall later and tries to pick up a strike check. Once you scab, you always will be a SCAB!!!!
