Can't have it both ways

Neighbors in Howell are unhappy that union electricians are picketing Americo Guglielmo, who operates his A.G. Electric business out of his home, in their neighborhood.

It raises some interesting questions.

Would Guglielmo pay his licensed electricians even his purported $35 an hour if it weren't for the impact the union has on the industry?

And just how much does he benefit on tax returns for use of a portion of his home exclusively as a business? A lot of people seem to take that little word "exclusively" more loosely than its dictionary definition -- and the IRS. Hmmm.
