James Sherk of the Heritage Foundation (and a proud fellow Hillsdale College alumnus) breaks down the evidence to debunk the “Employer Advantage” myth at the heart of Big Labor’s argument for the card-check bill before Congress:
The law stacks the deck against employers in union drives. And â€“ contrary to union assertions â€“ the overwhelming majority of employers obey the law. Which is why unions rack up that impressive 2-1 win rate. The Coalition for a Democratic Workplace is right to say that the government should not tilt the playing field even more heavily in union organizerâ€™s favor. That would hurt workers ability to make a free choice.
Last week, liberal icon George McGovern explained why not only the effective removal of the secret ballot but also the imposition of binding arbitration are so harmful. An economic research study found the poorly-named Employee Free Choice Act (commonly known as EFCA) will cost thousands of American jobs.
And newly selected junior U.S. Senator Michael Bennet STILL doesn’t have an opinion on it. He’s running scared of Big Labor political money and influence. Is this who Colorado needs representing us in the Senate?
