Have we entered a time warp? These strong arm tactics must be what it was like for labor about 100 years ago. In some cases they are violating federal law. Employees are forced to give to one political party or candidate and threatened with job loss. What are we, China? Former USSR? And Republicans claim Obama is a socialist or a communist? These are tactics I would even expect in North Korea.

No. Just the good old U. S. of A., with at-will employees in right-to-work states and no union protection.
