Local Union’s Ad Falls in Herald, Doesn’t Make Sound

September 4, 2019

Memo to IBEW Local 103: Next time, just set your money on fire.

Because this time, the local chapter of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers spent its dough promoting, well, womanhood with this full-page ad in today’s Boston Herald.

 

 

Body copy:

 

 

This disclaimer appeared at the bottom of the ad: “Paid for by IBEW Local 103. We are not asking any individual to stop performing any work or services, or to refuse to pick up, deliver, handle, or transport any goods.”

Don’t want to get confused with the recent labor-related mishegas at Boston City Hall, now do we?

Either way, here’s the thing: Does anyone at Wellesley College actually read the Herald?

Our educated guess is . . . no.

As for #WhatAboutMeWellesley, a search of that hashtag yields exactly four tweets, the most recent one from June 8.

New memo to IBEW Local 103: If you include a hashtag in your full-page newspaper ad, at least put something there yourselves.

Y’know?
