UFCW Scrapes the Bottom of the Barrel

Holy Fucking Shit, UFCW:

I live in Pennsylvania. Almost all liquor sales, apart from a few places that can sell beer, are through a state monopoly of stores that employ 5000 union employees. The state-owned stores are inefficient, expensive and badly run. The state tried a hilarious experiment in wine kiosks a few years back. Not long after, they had a much-publicized effort to make liquor store employees friendlier.

Governor Corbett, in a rare display of intelligence, is supporting an effort to privatize these stores to one degree or another. And the union responded with … that ad above. It would also appear that they have their facts wrong.

I’ve seen some vile ads before but this one takes the cake. Well done, UFCW.
