    I don't know if it falls into the category of protected speech if you are using your position as an employer to pressure your employees to vote a particular way. It's almost feudal, as if this restauranteur thinks that his employees are serfs that he owns.

    the money spent on political activities is raised by donation, by the political arms of the various unions

    Damn, Catz. I can't remember the last time we disagreed on something. LOL.

    All McDonald's is doing is enclosing flyers with the paychecks. They are not ordering anybody to do anything. I don't see the pressure you are talking about.

    Sounds like this franchise owner dressed up like a Union Boss for Halloween.

    Also sounds like McDonald's might be cutting medical benefits like a lot of other companies are doing.

    there is an implied threat, that unless you vote a certain way, things won't go well for the company, and hence, you.

    and he is correct; McDonalds only has a one-year protection from Obamacare. mind you, the way this guy went about it was dumb, and apparently illegal to boot; but let's not pretend like he was threatening individual workers.

    lol...yes, he was...either vote this way, or expect to not get a raise, or better benefits...sounds like a threat to me.
