Just what IS the supposed rationale behind this laughingly misnamed “Employee Free Choice Act”? As long as there has been elections, it has been recognized that the secret ballot is what prevents intimidation and allows anyone to vote his or her true choice.
Take away the secret ballot and it become obvious who the dissenters are, thus allowing those with less-than-pure motives to apply pressure — all KINDS of pressure — to ensure everyone votes the way they “are supposed to”.
I know this is their ultimate goal. Anyone with half of a semi-active brain cell can see that. But they can’t actually put it that way, so what IS their supposed motivation.
Anyone know? I can’t figure it out.
>>...apply pressure all KINDS of pressure...<<
I think tempers would flare and that pressure could work both ways.
Everyone knows where the union offices are and they are not hardened.
I am so glad I got out of unions back in the 1970’s.
