Barbara, please sign our petition calling on the Wisconsin attorney general to investigate Mike White, chairman and owner of Milwaukee based Rite-Hite, to determine if White broke the law when he emailed his employees about "personal consequences" if President Obama wins reelection. Click here to sign.
Around the country, there have been disturbing reports of employers sending vaguely, and sometimes not-so-vaguely, threatening messages to employees about how they should vote in the upcoming presidential election. Take, for example, the email that Mike White, chairman and owner of Milwaukee-based Rite-Hite, sent to his employees a few days ago:"[Employees] should understand the personal consequences to them of having our tax rates increase dramatically if President Obama is re-elected, forcing taxpayers to fund President Obama's future deficits and social programs (including Obamacare), which require bigger government."This email appears to violate Wisconsin statute 12.07 (3) which expressly forbids "threats intended to influence the political opinions or actions of the employees."
We need to take a stand against employers telling their workers how to vote. Please sign our petition calling on the Wisconsin attorney general to investigate whether or not Mr. White broke the law when he sent this email to employees.

This is why we Workers Need to Unite together--For as our Founding Father Mr. Ben Franklin once said--"Either we hang together or surely we will be hung seperately." Most expecially by the 1-2% and their Republican Minions.
