When watching the first eight minutes of the video below made for Lowe’s store managers, I thought, “nothing looks too bad so far.” But, as with virtually all corporate videos on unions, things get ugly and distorted quickly.
Starting at the 8:00 mark, Lowe’s states that “no matter how they might portray themselves, unions are a business.” You know, because businesses are democratically elected non-profit organization that are created by workers for the purposes of collective bargaining [/sarcasm].
The b.s. continues with the video claiming that “whatever problem an employee has, the organizer’s job is to point out that the union has a solution.”
