Majority of Americans Favor the Employee Free Choice Act

A new Gallup poll released today shows that the majority of Americans support the Employee Free Choice Act, despite the unending barrage of misleading information from corporations and mainstream media. This type of support shouldn't come as much of a surprise, as unions helped bring us paid vacation and the weekend, but what is surprising is that 1 in 3 Republicans support the EFCA as well:


A new Gallup Poll finds just over half of Americans, 53%, favoring a new law that would make it easier for labor unions to organize workers; 39% oppose it. This is a key issue at stake with the Employee Free Choice Act now being considered in Congress.

The poll reveals sharply differing reactions to the issue within the general public according to political orientation. Most Democrats (70%) say they would favor a law that facilitates union organizing, while a majority of Republicans (60%) say they would oppose it. Independents lean in favor of such a law, 52% vs. 41%.
