When The Company IS The Party — II

Businesses Point Workers Toward Ballot Boxes:

“A growing number of large U.S. corporations are offering services to register their employees to vote and mounting get-to-the-polls drives that advocates hope will swell the ranks of pro-business voters this election year.

Companies portray the voter push as a nonpartisan employee benefit. But Republicans see it as a boon to their hopes of maintaining control of the House and Senate and reelecting President Bush.”

This is not as bad as pressuring employees to contribute to The Party (then reimbursing them) but it’s clear where the pressure lies. Don’t DARE register as a Democrat in these circumstances if you want to keep your job.
