11. Used to work for Kroger.

Wouldn't surprise me. Most of my coworkers were Republicans. They would run around complaining that the Union was to blame for their wages not going high enough. One coworker(who was later fired, though not for this instance)actually physically assaulted the Union Rep when he came to talk during contract negotiations. I tried to explain that we needed to support and work with the union....but my coworkers believed that it was Kroger trying to help them and the union was holding them back! Really! To be fair, this is a very far right area(Southern Illinois)so I am sure their political ideology played a part-but I was shocked.

That being said, the RWNJ are making up a lot of garbage right now...and this is probably just more of that.
