Union Thuggery In Rochester, NY

This is a must-read. Unions are little more than protectionist shake-down rackets run by thugs and bullies. Read the tale to see who did what. Rather eye-opening.

The cornerstone of trade unionism is compulsory membership.

We’ll continue to support and patronize Sticky Lips, the food is outstanding. And do take some time with the additional links below.

So You Want To Do Business in New York? – Sticky Lips Pit BBQ: I’d like to share the story of my recent challenges with the New York State Labor Department.

For my second Sticky Lips BBQ restaurant, I purchased a building that was the old Road House Grill on Jefferson Road.  This is situated on property that is controlled by the Genesee Valley Regional Market Authority, which is a New York State Authority.  I own the building but lease the land from the Authority.

It took me a year and a half to build the new Sticky Lips BBQ Juke Joint, and it is a real showpiece.  That took everything mentally, physically, and monetarily that I had.  I did not use any state, local, or federal money to build it. Halfway through the project, I received a visit from the carpenters union, who was looking for work.
