Harris v Quinn, the bright side as viewed from a non Fair Share State

Employer ignores the same principle it invokes to dismiss employee's lawusit in order to justify out-sourcing its maintenance staff while eagerly anticipating receipt of Federal Tax Credits extended to assist development projects aimed at alleviating poverty even though it is simultaneously impoverishing its own employees.  A perfecta, if not a trifecta, of savage inconsistency.
