At a Harrisburg press lunch, Dick Yuengling called for “right to work” legislation in Pennsylvania, and it’s time for progressives and beer lovers to counter him and call for a boycott of Yuengling Beer. The AP reported:
The head of D.G. Yuengling and Son Inc. on Monday called for the passage of a “right to work” law in Pennsylvania that could dilute membership in labor unions and said he wanted retailers’ interests protected in any expansion of beer sales.
Dick Yuengling Jr. said at a Pennsylvania Press Club appearance that the state would attract more businesses if it adopted a right-to-work policy that would make it more difficult for unions to organize.
Yuengling said Corbett’s office contacted him “right away” after he was quoted saying his company might build its next brewery in another state. The firm recently expanded sales into a 14th state, Ohio, and it now has about 280 employees.
