    OK, how is this even remotely legal? I thought it was against the law to force your employees into political action.

    “We had managers that communicated to our work force that the attendance at the Romney event was mandatory, but no one was forced to attend the event. We had a pre-registration list. And employees were asked to put their names on a pre-registration list because they could not get into the event unless they were pre-registered and had a name tag to enter the premises.”

    They made this "mandatory" and then mewl that no one was forced to go - do they understand the definition of "mandatory"? And they took names so that they would know who didn't go? And they refused to PAY the workers for a mandatory er... meeting? No, a seminar? No, it was that gasbag's POLITICAL rally. So incredibly wrong...

    Isn't that the same semi-literate rednecks who spend half of their checks on guns, ammo, and survival gear every month so they can remain free ?

    It's found in other outlets now... and the statement was from a big (stinky) cheese at the mine.
