There really is only one thing you need to worry about and to act on this week: The Anti-democracy card check bill.
But the real news, the real mischief, is that a few different union groups are headed to DC for their annual meetings — including the gargantuan yearly gathering of Building Trades Unions. This means that thousands of union members will be descending on Washington — and Capitol Hill — to press for the erosion of democracy in the American workplace. In fact, the Senate Labor Committee plans a hearing on the topic on Tuesday. That’s never good.
A few key points about the bill, in case you’ve been out of town for the last month:
That’s pretty much all you need to know this week. Oh, and most importantly, click here to weigh in with your Senators. This thing got 241 votes when it passed the House, a testament to the union’s’ grip on the Congress. If they can pass a bill that throws democracy out the window, they can do anything.
Please do your part to stand up for democracy today. Urge your Senators to oppose this idiotic bill.
