Maine Governor Creates Jobs! (Painting Over Pro-Worker Mural)

"Maine Gov. Paul LePage has ordered the removal of a 36-foot mural depicting the state's labor history from the lobby of the Department of Labor headquarters building in Augusta…. Don Berry, President of the Maine AFL-CIO, issued a statement… 'It's a spiteful, mean-spirited move by the Governor that does nothing to create jobs or improve the Maine economy.'"
—Incorrect! Somebody's gotta paint over that mural. Now that's job creation we can believe in!

What, was it painted by Diego Rivera?

In addition, the LePage administration is renaming several department conference rooms that carry the names of pro-labor icons such as Cesar Chavez.

"LePage spokesman Dan Demeritt says the mural and the conference room names are not in keeping with the department's pro-business goals and some business owners complained."

We are officially through the looking-glass.

Oh for fuck's popsicle stick…
