Maine State House Bombed

POSTED BY ORHAN

Maine Governor Paul LePage ordered a 36-foot mural depicting the state’s labor history removed from the state Labor Department.

The mural depicts the Auburn and Lewiston mill strike of 1937, “Rosie the Riveter” who worked in real life at the Bath Iron Works, former Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins (the first woman cabinet member in American history), and more.

Why the removal? A spokesman for the Governor said it was not in keeping with the department’s pro-business goals.”

Some good citizens attempt to put the mural back in its rightful place:
