With the upcoming union vote at VW next week, anti union forces pull out their wallets in yet another attack full of lies.

Can anyone tell me if there an equal number of pro-union billboards around town as well?

Somewhow, I very much doubt it.

we've got billboards in Pacific Beach threatening people that try to get workers compensation for injury with jail

companies should be for the health of their employees

A public awareness campaign

They act like it's easy to claim workers comp in the first place.

It isn't.

The people want it, the corporation wants it but the Teathuglicans are fighting it.

In the war against workers, no lie is too big, if you can get it in the "press".

It's like I said, libe(R)tarians have co-opted this site, and they don't much care for unions.

Other people (unions) cut into their libe(R)ties.

Can see any logic to this beyond his own profit?

Don't forget.......Blame as much as you can on unions, after all, all that collective bargaining cuts into profits, and Wallstreet will still be demanding it's vig.
