Car dealer puts a positive spin on protest
WICHITA, Kan. – A car dealership in Wichita is fighting back against a protest aimed to hurt their business.
According to The Wichita Eagle, the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America Local 201 is the group that began the protest in front of Subaru of Wichita.
The group has a large sign set up in front of the business that reads “Shame on Subaru of Wichita.”
The picketing began after the dealership hired a non-union firm to help transform the property.
To fight back, Subaru of Wichita created a response to the sign that simply finishes off the thought, but probably not in the same way the group intended.
Now, the sign reads “Shame on Subaru of Wichita for having unbeatable prices.”
Aaron Wirtz, who handles marketing and media for Subaru, said the response to the signs has been unbelievable.
