Ohio McDonald's employees get voting instructions with their paychecks

If you work for this Canton, Ohio McDonald's franchise, you'd better be voting Republican if you know what's good for you.

Via ThinkProgress:

Along with their recent paychecks, employees received a pamphlet from their employer on company letter head that stated as the election season is here, we wanted you to know which candidates will help our business grow in the future. While pointing out that the vote is the employees personal decision, the pamphlet explicitly states, if the right people are elected we will be able to continue with raises and benefits at or above our present levels. If others are elected we will not:

The "right people" are John Kasich, Rob Portman, and Jim Renacci for this franchisee.

There's only one small problem with that handbill: It's illegal for employers in Ohio to include anything that will influence employees' electoral decisions with paychecks. There's a reason for that, of course. Employees who depend on the meager income they earn from a McDonald's job will take seriously the threat of not having a job if they don't elect the 'right people'.
