Company intimidates employees to vote a certain way
BROWN DEER - Some believe a company is using intimidation tactics on employees to vote for Mitt Romney for President on November 6th.
Rite-Hite, a world wide loading dock and industrial equipment company with an office in Brown Deer sent a letter to all of it's employees recently. It says it wants them to understand the personal consequences they might face if the company's tax rates increase if President Obama is re-elected.
The letter says it's possible employees could lose their company retirement contributions and their health care plans.
Democrats counter that employees have fared well under President Obama and will do even better during a second term.
The Rite-Hite letter also says it respects employees rights to vote as they choose.
