In June, I was surprised to find the inflatable rat near the Tarrytown Village Hall. I’ve seen The Rat in New York City in front of various buildings where union protests are going on.
There was also a sign from the disgruntled workers. They were shaming Alpine Painting, and their protest was right across the street from the train station.
The rat appears when non-union workers are used on jobs or if the employer is doing anti-union activities.
One must be wary of all types of rats.
