    Angry McDonald’s Workers Are Told Whom to Vote for

    Wow, this is the way to win elections....

    When workers in a McDonald’s restaurant in Canton, Ohio, opened their paychecks this month, they found a pamphlet urging them to vote for the Republican candidates for governor, Senate and Congress, or possibly face financial repercussions.

    It sounds like things are beginning to boil in Oho.

    Are people allowed to harass voters after they have voted?

    I’m amazed that anyone working for Mickey D’s would be so gung-ho for the party of tax-cuts-for-the-rich-at-the-expense-of-the-working-poor.

    The fact that they would have such poor judgment as to think this was a good idea? No, that doesn’t come as a surprise at all.

    Franchise Owner is not really the same as an every day worker and this person is probably worried that their screwing of their crew may come to an end.

    I might be wrong, but something doesn't seem completely legal about this. Anyone know if it is OK to do something like this?

    Are you serious? There's a difference between a union and a workplace.

    This letter violates a 1953 Ohio statute that prohibits political material from being attached to wage envelopes.

    "Unions" do not "pay" wages so any political pamphlets they may hand out would not fall into this topic as it is perfectly legal to do what you are attempting to deem as criminal. Here is an example of what I am talking about.
