Media focus on Employee Free Choice Act
Cullen Browder of CBS affiliate WRAL in Raleigh, NC interviewed state fed president James Andrews as part of a piece about the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA). You can watch the video online.
Business groups opposed to EFCA are rolling out the same arguments they used in the 1930s to try to defeat passage of the National Labor Relations Act, which guarantees workers’ right to form unions. But as James points out – not unlike then – our economy is in the mess it is precisely because business was allowed to do whatever it wanted.
Empowering workers to form unions free of employer intimidation and abuse – which EFCA will do – is exactly what’s needed to restore balance to our economy and grow our middle class again.
