full statement:


I was employed by McDonald's in Portage, Indiana, USA, from September of 1984 through July of 1989.


During this time, I spoke vith fellow employees (in a Jocose manner, although-- in my own mind--I actually took the matter quite seriously) about organizing ourselves and forming a union at McDonald's. I was overheard by a manager and warned very sternly, in no uncertain terms, that such talk (even if conducted in a tongue-in-cheek fashion) would lead to the termination of my employment. In fact, the manager made it clear that a person had been fired in the past for enunciating union sympathies.
