Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me and I welcome their hatred.-FDR

Anti-Union Liars

If you need another example of how far big business thugs will go to suppress unionization, look at what they did at Target.

Waddy said some store employees were told the store could close or that they could be replaced if they voted for unionization. The store also rented vans, manned by security guards, to take the employees to work to vote, she said.

"There was a serious level of tension in the store and, obviously, the company ran a really aggressive campaign," Waddy said. "A lot of people were taken aback by the fact that they thought the store was going to close."

It goes to show that the anti-union thugs can only win through lies and intimidation. I also found this quote interesting:

"At Target, it has always been our goal to have a culture where our team members don't want or need union representation," Derek Jenkins, Target senior vice president of stores in the northeastern United States, said in a statement.

Translation: "We know unions are good for employees, but we don't want to admit it because it's bad for our corporate masters. We will treat the employees good enough so that they don't complain, but not good enough to equal that of what they would get if they were unionized. So we will lie to them."

The best revenge is success and one day union membership the United States will return to what it was over 30 years ago.
