So why do the police think the strikers caused the vandalism? They offer no proof. No arrests either so what's up with that? They slander the good reputation of the BMW/Mini workers by venturing a guess (as does the spokeswoman in the last paragraph of this article)
Shame on BMW owners who are crossing the picket line to get their cars serviced when they could just as well go to another dealership NOT owned by Auto Nation nearby.
Mini owners may have a problem as there are fewer service centers for that car but in general we can say that BMW owners have little sympathy for the working man and woman, but will side with management because they are likely to be managerial class themselves.
Raging Grannies are union sisters, most of us having been members of CTA (teacher's union) CNA (nurses union) or AFL-CIO during our working careers.
Solidarity with workers everywhere!~
RG's from Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Mountain View and many neighborhoods.
It's not just BMW owners, The Raging Grannies should then be against all foreign automakers that put labor in the US auto industry out of work. Stand up and show your true communist colors!
Mountain View residents want to see the people in this city whether they work or live here treated fairly. Name calling is NOT what most of us are about, Ned.
you assume the raging grannies actually live in MV
Don't miss out on the discussion!
