Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Eager to boost their rent-a-mob numbers, the Communications Workers of America (yes, the same union linked to the attack on FreedomWorks employees) in New Jersey are bribing union members to protest GOP Gov. Chris Christie. Via Newark Star-Ledger h/t Chris Wysocki:
There appears to be efforts from unions to get more members to beat the drum today in Trenton. According to an e-mail obtained by The Star-Ledger, CWA Local 1038 is preparing for the rally with boxed lunches, leaflets and ponchos because of the expected rain.
The union is also offering to reimburse wages for anyone who takes a half-day off to participate in the rally.
“You must use your own time, either vacation or AL (administrative leave), and give the local a photocopy of your paystub. Please note that the payment for lost-time wages will be mailed to you; it will not be paid tomorrow,” the e-mail states.
Chris jokes: “Hey all you Tea Partiers, bring your pay stubs! Hillarity will ensue.”
Lady Tea Partiers, bring protection.
