No Hard Hats Worn Here

I especially like the bit where the scum-sucking corporate capitalist sends the workers a separate check from a different temporary company (at the same address as the primary one) to cover any hours worked beyond the normal 40 hour limit.

Bastards. I hope they get sued, big time. Eliot Spitzer, where are you? :)

I look forward to seeing more stories like this.

Even the Playing Field:

Look for a Union Label or products made in the United States of America.

While you can still find them!

Out Sourcing is Un-American Trading!
