  •  I had a woman working for me (18+ / 0-)

    who was a Republican.  Because all of her family was Republican.

    Her husband was a regional manager for Albertson's.  She was so proud, and really pushed him to further his career.

    During the strike in California, he was flown out to help run the stores.  So I told her he was a scab.  She had never heard the term before so I explained it to her.

    I also told her what they were doing to the workers out in California, they will someday do to him.

    "Oh no, he's far too valuable to them - that would never happen!"

    Guess who was laid off a year later.

    •  It's karma, but still makes me sad. (0+ / 0-)

      Don't like to hear about anyone losing their jobs, not even a scab.

      you had a chance for a follow up conversation with her after he was laid off.  Would be interesting to see if she ended up changing her views.
