Bah, Humbug: Nominate the 2009 Scrooge of the Year
It’s that time of year again, and national Jobs with Justice is seeking nominations for its 2009 “Scrooge of the Year” award.
JwJ is looking to highlight the greediest, most cold-hearted company or person of the year. This is the 10th year of the contest, but it’s back with a slight name change. In the past it was called the “Grinch of Year,” but the concept is the same: to nominate the person or company that has done the most harm to working families.
JwJ is collecting nominations until Dec. 7, and the voting will then begin for the top enemies of working men and women. Past winners include Wal-Mart, George W. Bush, Goodyear Tire & Rubber, Smithfield Chairman Joseph Luter III and Wall Street.
Jobs with Justice is a national organization with the vision of lifting up workers’ rights and struggles as part of a larger campaign for economic and social justice and worker‘s rights.
