WGBH=Workers Get Big Hatin’

The Wisconsin public employee unions may have felt the love during the Cheeseheads Held Hostage standoff,  but it’s quite the opposite for the WGBH union (Association of Employees of the Educational Foundation, Communications Workers of America, Local 1300) that has resoundingly rejected management’s “final offer.”

Just check out the comments about today’s Boston Globe report for Exhibits A through Umpteen. They run roughly 131-1 in favor of giving WGBH union members a dopeslap. No question there’s an healthy dollop of class resentment involved, and granted, this is a private sector union, but even so, that’s a pretty big swing of the pendulum, no?

    I have no idea why, but the commenter community on boston.com skews WAY right. So I’m not shocked to see a huge anti-union perspective in the comments on the WGBH union story. And I’m not sure about any swing of the pendulum from Wisconsin — I haven’t checked, but my guess is that last week there was a debate on boston.com about whether Scott Walker should run for President or just be made a saint.

      Thanks, Paul. Very interesting about the boston.com commenters – haven’t checked them out as often as I should.
