Over the summer, we offered 10 reasons why the Employee Free Choice Act should fail. It was a good list, but incomplete.
You see, EFCA has the potential to wreak such havoc on our economy and workers’ rights that it’s not difficult to find yet another 10 reasons why it should fail:
10. Substituting one bad idea for another is not a “compromise.”
9. A key EFCA negotiator is “not happy” with the “compromise” bill.
8. States from coast to coast have rejected it.
7. It’s an act only a labor boss could love.
6. Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle are against it.
5. It has an equally evil twin.
4. It has another equally evil twin.
3. Even EFCA supporters seem confused about what’s in the bill.
2. A federal agency has already declared a key feature of EFCA “unreliable.”
1. The unemployment rate is already too high, and EFCA would only make it worse.
