I attended the Rally for Workers' Rights today in Cincinnati! It wasn't quite as smashing as the protests against the fascist Pathway Family Center cult, but it wasn't bad either.
First thing I noticed was that the rally had been moved at the last minute. It was supposed to be at 4th & Broadway but it was relocated to 4th & Sycamore. I didn't know this until 15 minutes after it had begun. I have no idea why it was moved, but I'm suspecting it was because of high-handed harassment.
One of the main concerns of the event was the fact that the city of Cincinnati gave $77,000,000 in taxpayer funds to Western Southern Life to build its Queen City Tower - under the condition that the company would create good jobs. But Western Southern broke its promise by hiring a nonunion janitorial firm that provides no wage or benefit standards.
Why the city isn't suing Western Southern for breach of contract is beyond me.
The Rally for Workers' Rights received absolutely zero media coverage. The media is more interested in the 12 idiots who showed up at the national Tea Party this week.
Meanwhile, Ohio's totalitarian S.B. 5 was signed into law today by ol' Scissorhands. There's already talk of a lawsuit to have it thrown out for being unconstitutional.
