“An Offer You Can Not Refuse” in Wisconsin

Union bosses in Wisconsin are threatening the economic livelihoods of small businesses that refuse to put a sign in their windows supporting government workers’ union. According to a letter mailed to business owners, if businesses fail to comply:

“Failure to do so will leave us no choice but (to) do a public boycott of your business. And sorry, neutral means ‘no’ to those who work for the largest employer in the area and are union members.”

Some call this a boycott. To us, it’s on the edge of racketeering.
