Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) says the “Employee Free Choice Act” has a very misleading name. DeMint says the legislation would strip away workers’ fundamental right to a private vote on union organizing so voters should urge Congress reject it.
“It’s hard for me to get past the name ‘Employee Free Choice Act’ because it’s anything but free choice,” said DeMint, a guest on this week’s “America’s Business with Mike Hambrick” radio program. “In fact, we know when you take the secret ballot away from a worker or a voter of any kind you basically subject them to intimidation and public pressure that shouldn’t be there.”
