    Those who have read George Orwell’s chilling novel, 1984, in which slogans like “education is slavery” are part of the brainwashing propaganda of the Ministry of Truth (MINITRUE), would appreciate the even worse deception of Big Labor-the owners and masters of today’s Democrat Party.

    Big Labor wants to take away the secret ballot from workers everywhere, so they can use thug tactics into intimidating workers to sign a card on the spot to accept a union.

    The deception comes from calling this un-American bill, The Employee Free Choice Act-EFCA

    Public employees unions have grown into one of the most powerful and intimidating and negative forces in the United States because all levels of government have become job factories to repay Democrats with votes.

    The private sector, however, has seen union membership drop off by millions, who have learned that unions do not exist for the welfare of 300 million consumers nor for 156 million workers but do exist for the several million remaining union members and their many corrupt leaders, too many of whom, have felony records for corruption, thug tactics, stealing funds while living like kings.

    Hopefully Americans in large numbers will let their representatives know how outrageous it would be for Democrats to make EFCA a law.

    The newspapers can be found at Laborpains.org.

    A rep for you.
    Unions had their day and place, but no longer. They've done nothing but drive our economy into the ground, ruin our education system, and introduce wholescale corruption into politics.

    Here we have it again. Conservatives doing everything that they can to damage the working man. Union membership is down to an alltime low, and the wages of the working man are stagnate or worse. Could there possibly be a corelation? Time for a resurgance of unions, time for laws that keep manufacturing in this nation, instead of rewarding those that offshore jobs.

    Why are they trying to do away with the "secret ballot" is there a reasonable answer to this question? Or just DU bullshit?

    You can bet if this passes, I will do my best to not purchase any goods or hire any services from union ran industries.

    This is a ridiculous policy.

    If secret ballots are good enough to elect a President, they are good enough to certify a union.
