Truth Before Dishonor

I would rather be right than popular

Sheet Metal Workers International Truck Filled With Romney/Ryan Yard Signs

From Ohio:

Perrysburg police arrested four Toledo area men early Friday morning on charges of stealing Mitt Romney campaign signs in Wood and Lucas counties in Northwest Ohio.

The signs were found in a pickup truck owned by Sheet Metal Workers International, Union Local 33 in Parma, according to the police report.

Many of the signs — some measuring as large as 4 feet by 8 feet — were believed to have been put up by members of Northwest Ohio Conservative Coalition, said John McAvoy, the group’s president.

I was a member of the Sheet Metal Workers International for over eight years in Ohio. My Union dues helped get Barack Obama elected. My Union dues helped get Sherrod Brown elected. My Union dues helped get Ted Strickland elected. All of whom I have always vehemently opposed.

So, why did I remain in that Union for so long?
1) Ohio is NOT a Right to Work state.
2) I needed the job for my own survival.
