The New York Times reports that employees in a Canton, Ohio McDonald’s received a pamplet with their pay-checks this week urging them to vote Republican “or possibly face financial repercussions.”

The pamphlet appeared calculated to intimidate workers into voting for Republican candidates by making a direct reference to their wages and benefits, said Allen Schulman, a Democrat who is president of the Canton City Council and said he obtained a copy of the pamphlet on Wednesday.

The pamphlet said: “If the right people are elected, we will be able to continue with raises and benefits at or above the current levels. If others are elected, we will not.”
