Anyone who thinks union officials are satisfied with their efforts so far in protesting Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s attempts to save their jobs, haven’t been paying attention. In Wausau, WI, a group responsible for organizing the Labor Day Parade in Marathon County has decided to use their control over the event into a political stunt.
No, they’re not giving away free Volvo S70 custom floor mats; they’re banning all Republicans from appearing in the parade. That includes popular GOP freshman US Congressman Sean Duffy, as well as state Sen. Pam Galloway (R-Wausau) and state Rep. Jerry Petrowski (R-Marathon).
It’s a sad day when a public holiday is so controlled by organized labor that only those who vote with them one hundred percent of the time are welcome to take part. The best way to protest? I suggest that all GOP-leaning voters boycott Marathon County’s Labor Day parade for the partisan shill-fest its organizers have transformed it into.
