If the expanded bill does not pass the Legislature, the four Salem representatives who oppose it — Bick, Sytek and the Garcia sisters — will never see another of my votes. Even though I am a dedicated Republican, I will lead the fight to defeat them the next time they come up for re-election.
Shades of the ‘20s and ‘30s. Some of the corporations want to give the workers day’s leave instead of paying them time and a half. Watch out, folks, next they will want the 48-hour week again. When the politicians speak of going forward they don’t mean to bring back these ancient rules. Also, certain people would like to break the unions. This is not going to happen. As a matter of fact, if things do not improve enough to give more people more jobs, you will see more groups organizing that never did before.
