Skico not above the law

Dear Editor:

Now wait just a N.Y. second.

As one reader stated: Our right to protected freedom of speech ends at our employer’s door? “I must have missed that in civics class.” Has the Aspen Skiing Co. ever even read the National Labor Relations Act or do they think they’re completely above the law?

People for a Living Wage is having a meeting at 5 p.m. on Jan. 2 at the Rio Grande Room in the old Aspen Youth Center (next to the jail and Pitkin County Library).

Even though I have been suspended unjustly for both discussing the fact that Skico pays its least paid instructor $69 for a full-day private lesson which they charge $625 and for distributing the advertisements that appeared in both local newspapers, I am offering the Aspen Skiing Co. or their ownership the opportunity to speak at the beginning of the meeting.
