    WASHINGTON — 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.

    .The pamphlet appeared calculated to intimidate workers into voting for Republican candidates by making a direct reference to their wages and benefits, said Allen Schulman, a Democrat who is president of the Canton City Council and said he obtained a copy of the pamphlet on Wednesday.

    The pamphlet said: “If the right people are elected, we will be able to continue with raises and benefits at or above the current levels. If others are elected, we will not.”

    How do you get "Republicans" out of one person? There was no actual threat made, if what is stated in the article is true.

    There was a threat made. However not like the OP wants you to think. They were not saying vote for us or we will hurt you. They are saying vote for us or the Democrats are going to hurt you.

    Elections have consequences. Deal with it.

    Where do parents go to stop unionist teachers from filling their kids heads full of propaganda at election time?

    I was once told my job would be in jeopardy if I did not join a corporate PAC. Which included donations.

    I asked the boss if his children got home safe from school.
    He backed off.

    this was with a Major telecom company.

    Don't really see a threat there. I mean how on earth can they threaten someone when all somone has to do is say yeah i voted for them whether or not they actually did?

    There are certain facts though, if Congress doesn't seriously change, we will be in alot of pain. But then we may be in for pain regardless.

    I thought it was acceptable for unions to do this kind of thing. Are you telling me it is not?

    There something about that little inconvenient thing called the truth. Do you think that some business will stay a float with the democrats in charge? Hell with that I would fire everybody with a democrat bumper sticker on their car.
