17. My former employer called a meeting with all employees back when Raygun was running for president.

He started by telling us that if we didn't vote Republican, we'd all lose our jobs.

In Ohio.

Holy crap did he ever get in trouble.

First off, it was a unionized shop, and as soon as he started talking politics almost everyone got up and left.

He tried to stop us, but we told him politics was a 'no-no' to base a meeting on and he couln't stop us from leaving, and if he didn't like it, to call the local and complain to a business rep.

Second was when a mandatory meeting was called by the employer which for some employees was off the schedule for them, which violated terms of our contract for 'off-the-clock' work, and demanded that they got paid for their time (four hour minimum for a 'call-in' from the employer)...after we filed a grievance with the local, and they in turn also turned it over to Wage and Hour.
