Bklink: Non-Union Blow-Up Rats

I.R.O.N.Y: Those big, blow-up rats that are brought out to protest non-union work at development sites and businesses are made in a non-union shop. "Go figure. On a rare trip to Midtown East for a meeting Wednesday morning, we spied an all-new yellow "union rat" peering into the second floor windows of an office building undergoing a (presumably) non-union renovation, and got curious about the nasty-looking inflatable critters and where they come from." Answer: from a non-union company in Illinois. It's unclear whether the blow-up rat business is traditionally unionized.--INSIJS

The ones I have seen in Brooklyn were made in Brooklyn. I can't remember the company name...but, that is an interesting point.
