Politics on Tuesday (Maybe!)

I've read about it in Tracy Press. Apparently, there's a threat of a poll workers strike.

“The whole idea of a strike is to make them (the county) feel it,” said union spokesman Thomas Dewar. “We’re always looking for leverage points when we strike.”

This is a pure and simple extortion. Only usually the victim is a business, so the crime is lost in the rhetoric of social justice. This time the victims are the taxpayers. Reading stories like this makes me wonder if Cezar Chavez was a good guy or just a racketeer.
