The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union launched a fun interactive game Monday test people's knowledge of the anti-worker sentiments of the top Republican presidential contenders. The game is a great use of low-level technology to make a clear point about the candidates. Using only YouTube clips with embedded links, they achieved a technological feat that in the past would've required much higher level tech skills and programming. This is a tool that has a lot of potential use for campaigns and interest groups in the future.

The description of the game:

We've seen all the outrageous comments, one-liners and sniping between candidates. Now let's see where the candidates stand on issues like public employee unions, child labor and Social Security! Play the game, then sign up below to receive email updates and text alerts.

The game tests viewers' knowledge of recent comments by Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum, making it obvious that none of the candidates has the interests of workers in mind.
