As we mentioned earlier this month, some Wisconsin unions have targeted businesses who have not taken overt, public steps to support the unions and stand against Gov. Scott Walker. A letter obtained by a local personality shows it's spreading.
Talk-show host Jay Weber posted a message today on his website reportedly showing a letter template from an AFSCME representative used to intimidate local businesses in the city of Union Grove. The logic is baffling. The letter doesn't accuse the business owner of coming out against the union or vocalizing support for Walker, but rather says that since the business did not respond to requests to post a pro-union sign, the business is tacitly supporting the governor. The penalty for such inaction? A boycott:
Parrett confirmed the contents of the letter to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and added: “It’s going on in other parts of the state."
Red State asks an interesting question: "Will unions be demanding homeowners to put [pro-union signs] in their windows as well? And, if they don’t…?"
