McDonald’s Workers Told to Vote GOP or Face Financial Repercussions.

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.”

Wal-Mart…Shameful

Wal-Mart has been part of many a shameful story, but this one goes at the top of its list of shame.  Wal-Mart is now using fear and mistruths (a now-common Republican strategy) while instructing employees to vote Republican.  Wal-Mart: kiss my ass. 

That’s right – Wal-Mart Inc. has organized its managers and is telling it’s employees how to vote.  As if that isn’t un-American enough, it’s telling them that the Democratic party is against the workers and that a Democratic president would result in job cuts and lower salaries (Riiiiiiiiiiight…like the job market that is doing so well and like the minimum wage increase the Democrats put in this year). 

From Rove politics to Bush fear-mongering to McCain junk ads to Big Business Execs muscling employees (big business doesn’t get much bigger than Wal-Mart, they’re the largest private employer in the US).  It’s hard to believe people want a change from the Republicans.
