Obama to Compel You to Join Union?

Wednesday, August 15, 2012


Demos, a think tank with close ties to the Obama administration, has released numerous reports contending the economy would be in better shape if the federal government stepped in to make it easier for workers to join unions.

That is also a central thesis of the Center for American Progress, which has been described by Time Magazine as the “idea factory” of the Obama White House.

Demos, the Center for American Progress and other progressive groups are pressing the federal government to enact other union-friendly policies, such as tax incentives for unionized companies.

Another plan calls for Congress to pass the controversial Employee Free Choice Act, the EFCA, also known as Card Check. If passed, EFCA would streamline the process of forming unions in the workplace and prohibit some current forms of union-busting by employers.
