Free willies

By Owen Paine on Friday February 23, 2007 02:12 PM

It's... free choice week!



As members of Congress return home for the Presidents Day recess, working families are launching a Week of Action to push for passage of the Employee Free Choice Act.
Read this free-to-dribble act -- it's toothless mush:
  • Establishing stronger penalties for violation of employee rights when workers seek to form a union and during first-contract negotiations...
  • Providing mediation and arbitration for first-contract disputes....
  • Allowing employees to form unions by signing cards authorizing union representation...
Tea-party rules for organizing -- and yet for most Democrats it's way too vicious and Bolshie. My guess, all but about 130 Congos find this bill downright incendiary.

The road ahead to "job choice" will only shorten when these union cadre get out of the lobby and over to the job site. Only when they themselves are willing to get their own fat asses arrested for doin' a little direct de facto enforcement of workers' rights, will the tower boys take notice and the public respond.

Job sites are like lunch counters and front seats on the bus -- you got to occupy 'em and not budge, if you expect to have any chance of making them yours by right.
