The unions in Wisconsin have taken thuggery to a new low level. Letters have gone out to businesses that if you do not display a sign saying you support the union, you will be boycotted by union supporters. This reminds me of the shakedowns and extortion clearly utilized by the mob where they would take payments from businesses in exchange for the stores’ protection. This is desperation at it’s lowest and most despicable level. Is it legal ? Absolutely. Will it backfire ? Hopefully. And one more point the unions have made clear, “neutral means no”.
Maybe those of us on the right should require businesses to put a sticker on their business stating they are for or against Obamacare, for or against same-sex marriage, pro-choice or pro-life, and on a national level–pro-union or right to work ? Then we could make our purchasing decisions based on a particular’s business leanings. This would actually be a very stupid and anti-American step to take. But apparently not to the very desperate unions in Wisconsin.
