NY Times supports workers rights!

The New York Times has come out in support of the workers right to organize. The Right to Organize - New York Times It is time to try to reverse the trend of corporation anti-union harassment. In the 50's unions represented 35% of the total workforce. There are new estimates showing current levels closer to 7%. President Bush has threatened to veto this Employee Free Choice Act in the form of Bill HR 800 Search Results - THOMAS (Library of Congress) that was passed by the House of Representatives last Thursday.

I have first hand witnessed the underhanded tactics that an employer will use to threaten or confuse a workers choice to become a part of a collective bargaining unit. National Labor Relation Board conducted elections sway heavily to corporations favor. It is time that the trend changes or at least that a fair playing field is established.
