If your company is warning you about your vote, you might want to pay attention. Recently a company in my home city’s suburb of Brown Deer, Rite Hite (yes that’s the name of the company) is warning it’s employees of their votes coming November 6th. Rite Hite is a company that is industrialized in manufacturing sales in dock levelers, industrial doors, safety barriers and many other industrial related products and services. The CEO of the company, Mike White sends a message featuring “personal consequences” if in the event President Obama is re-elected for a second term:
Every Rite-Hite employee in America should understand the personal consequences to them of having our tax rates increase dramatically if President Obama is re-‐elected, forcing taxpayers to fund President Obama’s future deficits and social programs (including Obamacare), which require bigger government.
Excuse me, what does Mike White mean of “personal consequences” if voting for President Obama? If you are company owner of any kind ask yourself this question, do you send personal warnings to your employees about personal experiences about those who vote a certain way? If you do, you’re just a punk! No company of any kind should NEVER tell him or her who to vote for despite of their feelings towards an election season.
Does my church tell me that? NO!
Does the City of Milwaukee’ s Election Commission My High School, College and University Alma Maters tell me whom to vote for? Excuse my french in the words of the late Whitney Houston (God rest her soul) HELL TO THE NO!
The owner of Rite Hite must be having that Romneyism/Romnesia sick disease in order to think that it would be the death of his company if Obama gets reelected. Technically, I’m calling it BS in terms of being a scare tactic Have I worked for Rite Hite? No. But after reading about these company CEO’s telling their employees who to vote for in terms of saving their little hides, I’m taking a pass. Knowingly to me, I’m not passing my resumes to this company. Don’t expect me to pass my LinkedIn stuff to them either. It;s my right to choose where I want to work. I’m not saying to be polarized or whatever. But in essence of this, it should matter.
According to the Wisconsin Statue 12.o7 in regarding Politics and Jobs (and this really should be stamped in everyone’s business minds in Wisconsin!) :
12.07 Election restrictions on employers.
