LaborTalk: My Response to a Personal Attack By the Head of the Georgia AFL-CIO
- LaborTalk by Harry Kelber
On February 13, I received the following e-mail from Charlie Key, president of the Georgia AFL-CIO, to an article I had written about 'Heavy Pension Losses.' I am posting Key's e-mail in its complete, unedited version, after which I will respond.
'Harry last I heard you were not even a union member so quit whining about rights. All the information you are whining about is available though to members and non-members alike. So instead of whining like so many other free riders, why don't you get off your ass and do the research on the questions you raised. And without doing the same kind of research the AFL-CIO and CTW don't have the information you speak of and if you know as much as you pretend to you would know that.'
--Charlie Key, President of the Georgia AFL-CIOblog note: when I emailed Charlie Key to demand an apology to Harry, Charlie told me to go to hell. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
