Popping up here and there have been versions of an op-ed on the Employee Free Choice Act by Mark Weisbrot, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, a “progressive” think tank funded by the usual foundation suspects. (George Soros’ Open Society Institute AND Barbra Streisand. Whew) Weisbrot argues that the social causes supported by organized labor would come to fruition if only we could do away with secret-ballot elections in the workplace.
Rarely do you see such a clear statement of totalitarian practices and aims in the major media.
As published in the Chicago Sun-Times, excerpts:
This bill would mandate that an employer recognize the union if it obtains the signatures of a majority of employees. There would be no need for the long and costly election campaign.
This law would probably change Americans’ lives more than any legislation since the New Deal brought us Social Security. The political influence of millions of new union members would also bring us closer to such basic reforms as universal health care. It’s all long overdue.
Radical change, accomplished through a mass social movement without democratic elections.
Historically, these movements have not ended well.
