Blackmail or Public Service?

The CNMI Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management has invited Deanne Siemer to utilize "the power of modern teleconferencing technology" (AKA Skype) to make a presentation on "The Impact of Public Law 17-1 Rules and Regulations on Employers & Contract Workers” during their next regular meeting.

The press release for the event says, "the consequences of not following the new rules and regulations (i.e., possible imprisonment for not more than 90 days, or fine of not more than $500 or both) will be discussed and the session will conclude with a question and answer period." It then goes on to say that, "the presentation includes lunch and the cost is $20 for SHRM members and $30 for non-members."

Is this blackmail or a public service?

Quess, we won't see this story run in the Variety.
Nice blog title by the way, sets the old road against the made up middle road and all the whiners.
