All-too-often, it seemed as though we (and very few others) were the only ones on the bandwagon trying to raise awareness to the link between unions' efforts to do away with the right to an election and the Democratic Party.
Of course, the National Right to Work Foundation has been a longstanding protector of employee rights in many different respects. But very few (none, as far as we could tell) were committed to raising awareness about what the unions call the "Employee Free Choice Act," but what is really the Kill American Jobs Act.
Then, a couple of years ago, UnionFacts.com came along. At last...A beacon in the night.
A few months later, on Labor Day 2006, we started EmployerReport.com, with no donations, no expert web people, just us...on our own time and on our own dime.
Then, of course, the Democrats took over Congress in November of 2006 and FINALLY some people began to wake up in the business community. (Better late than never, as the saying goes.)
Well, it's long past time (but maybe not too late) that the American public be made aware of the $1 billion scheme union bosses are trying to pull off in this year's elections by demanding their political puppets pass the hallucenogenically-named Employee Free Choice Act.
According to a press release, the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace will be airing nationwide TV spots.
Hopefully, between watching Desperate Housewives and reruns of M*A*S*H* the public will sit up and take notice.
Perhaps the public will realize that the so-called "hope" that so many Bush-weary citizens have been fawning and fainting over has already sold out to special interests....the union bosses at the AFL-CIO & Change to Whine federations.
But, then again, perhaps we're hoping for too much?... Time will tell.
In the meantime, welcome to the party CDW! We're happy to have you in the fight to save workers' private ballots and their jobs from the future outsourcing and small business closures that will occur if EFCA passes.You can view the ad HERE or here...
