Swedwood/Danville follow-up

A follow-up to an earlier post about Ikea's Swedwood plant in Virginia -

First, John Stewart and the Daily Show did a good job getting at the heart of the issue in this skit a month or so ago...

You can be guaranteed that the business folks (and the Pickle Vendors) are up in arms about what happened at Swedwood yesterday… Story HERE

The bottom line for me is that they got 76% of the vote, that’s a pretty good sign it was/is a lousy place to work... and ultimately, concerns of that communities economic developers notwithstanding, it may be a great thing for that region because crappy companies will know you can't go there and treat people like dirt.
