Protest banners

San Luis ObispoMay 2, 2014 

I’ve seen these guys holding a banner stating “Shame on Nick Tompkins” around town, and understand they are union members who are unhappy they haven’t been hired to work on Mr. Tompkins’ jobs.

It’s really sad that these people are complaining about Mr. Tompkins, as nobody in this area has supplied more well-paying jobs in construction than he. His buildings have kept hundreds of people employed in this industry.

Perhaps this is a last attempt of a dying organization desperately looking for attention. Too bad they have to smear a decent local man in the attempt.
