AOC Got Them Fired

Once upon a time there was a solar energy company in New York City. Its name was: Bright Power. It was a good company. It was a growing company. It did a lot of public good.

And then one day a Queens bartendress corralled the employees of Bright Power. She told them that they were being exploited by their capitalist oppressors. She recommended that they unionize.

Rah. Rah.

So, the happy workers began taking the steps needed to form a union.

Rah. Rah.

But then, would you believe, the executive officers of Bright Power decided that they did not want to deal with a union. So they fired everyone. And they rehired their employees as contract workers.

Bye, bye, job security.

Another victory for AOC.

Here is the story, from Godfather Politics via Maggie’s Farm:

The owners of a solar power company fired their entire workforce after Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez agitated the workers and urged them to unionize.

Looks like having the queen of the Green New Deal telling them to unionize was probably not the best advice, huh?

Last week, Bright Power decided to fire its staff and farm all the work out to subcontractors instead of maintaining their own workforce. The firing occurred just as the workers were following Ocasio-Cortez’s advice to form a union.

“We have come to the conclusion that our resources have been spread too thin with so many different kinds of work all being done in-house,” Bright Power CEO Jeffrey Perlman said according to “It makes business sense to return to a fully subcontracted solar installation model.”

According to reports, Bright Power had hired a full-time workforce, employing them for the last four years. But before that, the company used subcontractors.

Guess what, that Queens bartendress, the one who managed to convince Amazon to take its Eastern hub out of Queens… was seriously upset. It hurt her feelings.

Jeffrey Perlman should run the labor dept. As for the now unemployed slobs, they are just another result of poor grammar.
