Aaron Brown: Union Choice Matters

This will be my second post about Unions, but Aaron Brown at Minnesota Brown has a great post on the employee free choice act.

It's a must read, he starts:

One of the great setbacks in Minnesota's U.S. Senate campaign is how Republican operatives -- more specifically big business operatives -- have been able to cloud the water over the issue of the Employee Free Choice Act. Their ads featuring mobster-like figures pressuring pleasant looking workers into joining unions have fueled many misconceptions held by people unfamiliar with the goals of the labor movement and have even confused some voters into thinking that they might lose their "secret ballot" for public elections, too.

If you want a specific example of Employer abuse (although not from Minnesota) check out my previous post about Smithfield Pork.
