Why the "Employee Free Choice Act" is not for Employees or Free Choice

The spectacular productivity of this nation has been sapped by the $70 an hour wages of the auto and steel workers unions. That has made them unable to compete inside our own nation. Why a car maker/worker in Detroit should get twice what my mechanic in Portland gets in wages and salaries I will never understand.

The collapse of the car makers led to the collapse of the housing market in terms of mortgage loans. The collapse of the mortgage loans lead to the collapse of the housing industry and the credit industry. The collaps of the housing is leading to double digit unemployment.

Now the Unions want to usurp more workers' power, ruin more of the economy, and take more power by sidelining their secret ballots. The "Card Check" system will allow some union terrorist to extract signatures rather than restrict decisions to a secret ballot. Some brother Teamster will meet you in the parking lot to sign the paper.

The claims that the "Employee Free Choice Act," are from unions who have seen their power collapse, not because fewer can chose unions, but because those who do have lost their jobs.

The highest and best mission of the unions was to improve worker conditions and protect their natural rights. They are ignoring that and have focused on wages and benefits. In doing that, our nation's workers have gone from employed at $40 per hour to unemployed at $70 per hour.

This is about increasing union power and revenues from dues. It is not about more freedom for workers, but less. It is not about picking your union or having a union. It is about taking power from the workers to be represented by those who fail to represent them.

Senator Merkley is NOT a friend of the worker. He is a tool of the unions bosses.

Senator Jim DeMint's Official YouTube Account Following the November elections in 2006, the senator stood up against big spenders in Congress and stopped over 10,000 wasteful pork projects. Famed Washington journalist Robert Novak called him a "hero."He was recently ranked as the Senate's most conservative member by National Journal and as the No. 1 senator voting for responsible tax and spending policies by the National Taxpayers Union. DeMint understands the greatness of a country is found in its people and values, not in its government
Republican Leader of the House, John Boehner House Republican Leader and a staunch opponent of pork-barrel politics, John is fighting to eliminate wasteful spending, create jobs, and balance the federal budget without raising taxes. He has challenged Republicans in the 111th Congress to be not just the party of “opposition,” but the party of better solutions to the challenges facing the American people. Under the new House GOP leadership team John leads, House Republicans have formed “solutions groups” to develop principled alternatives on the issues that matter most to American families and small businesses, and launched the GOP State Solutions project, an initiative aimed at bringing reform-minded Republicans at the state and federal levels together to promote common-sense solutions from outside the Beltway.
