    Trump is now compelling people to attend his rallies with threats of no pay if they didn't attend the Trump rally at a Shell plant.

    Trump is stealing taxpayer dollars to pay for his political rallies.

    "Trump was later criticized for pushing a political message during his visit, which was sponsored by the White House and funded by taxpayer dollars."

    Compelling workers to attend a political rally by monetary inducement is corrupt.

    Doesn't seem any worse than having to pay union dues and then having the union take that money and donate it to ploiticans and causes you don't support.

    They were paid. That's not the same thing as being compelled.

    Haters whine about everything.

    In fact, it is what they accuse "regimes" of.

    Hello? Where does it say that Trump was "compelling" people to attend his rallies? Were you just LYING about that part?

    Their company, their rule. If you don't like their rules, pack your shit, GTFO, and look for another job.
