Ohio McDonald’s Urges Employees To Vote Republican To Keep Getting Benefits And Raises

A Canton, OH McDonald’s franchise is telling its employees that if they like raises and benefits, they’d best vote Republican.
(via Think Progress)

Along with their recent paychecks, employees received a pamphlet from their employer on company letter head that stated “as the election season is here, we wanted you to know which candidates will help our business grow in the future.” While pointing out that the vote is the employee’s “personal decision,” the pamphlet explicitly states, “if the right people are elected we will be able to continue with raises and benefits at or above our present levels. If others are elected we will not”

This is a violation of the Ohio Revised Code-Title XXXV, which says an employer “shall not influence political opinions or votes of employees.”

Something tells me that this McDonald’s in not my kind of place.
