  •  yeah - they are all about democracy at work (12+ / 0-)

    ...don't the business lobbies have a point that the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) proposed by labor and its supporters will undermine democracy by eliminating the secret ballot.

    Employers opposed to unions are not in the least interested in worker's democratic rights to organize and speak freely. Any employer who doesn't want a union can prevent it. It's easy. Workers must be determined and kind of crazy to go through the process of forming their union. I went to work as a union organizer for a non-profit after I had been fired for insubordination. After the year long process I went looking for a job in my town in my field and I couldn't get a job anywhere - until I applied in the town 50 miles away. It took one day to get hired. Blackballed by a non-profit?

    Feudal system = the owner owns your job and you work at will.
    Democracy = you join a union that elects its leaders and you participate in decisions at meetings.
