The list of worker abuses by Hyatt Hotels is so big that if it were a person, it would most likely be compared to Ricardo Blas Jr., at 481 lbs, the largest athlete competing in London, or to an NFL lineman.

Problem is, Poland’s largest labor union rebuked Romney, pointing out its continued support of American labor unions in their stand against the GOP’s attacks.

From known union busters to the mastermind behind George W. Bush’s economic policy, the potential VP field is packed with politicians whose political bent is for the 1 percent.
