Union Made in Allentown
There was a time in Allentown when the label Union Made, or Made in USA, referred to a product, now it's a pandering politician. Although the City has yet to secure a developer for the proposed office building and hotel on the arena block, the Administration's hand puppet, the ACIDA, announced that all construction will be union done. Morning Call reporter Scott Kraus notes that the construction unions contributed over $36,000 to Pawlowski in 2011. When the construction is completed, nothing will be produced in these new buildings. There are no union jobs in these new buildings, instead, people stick their McDonald's wages into slot machines, look at art or toothless skating Canadians. The rat pictured above, visited Reilly's City Center Development Company this past summer. If the chosen private developers will also be required to use union construction, has yet to be announced.
