The Armageddon-Provoking Employee Free Choice Act

Human Rights

We’ve been fighting for Employee Free Choice for months.  Together with SEIU, we pressured Burger King to backtrack on their anti-labor position.  We pushed for Hilda Solis, a true progressive champion of the working class, to be confirmed as Labor Secretary.  And all along the way, we’ve dispelled the myths about Employee Free Choice, calling out Fox News, Republicans, and anti-union CEOs like Home Depot’s Bernie Marcus and Wal-Mart’s Lee Scott for distorting what this bill would mean for hardworking Americans.

Now that Hilda Solis is Labor Secretary, we stand a great chance to make Employee Free Choice a reality.  Workers will be able to unionize more easily and negotiate better wages, benefits, and working conditions.  But we’re still fighting an ideological battle with conservatives, which will only intensify as Employee Free Choice nears a vote.  That’s why SEIU continues to roll out great video campaigns like this one:

Our country is on the verge of “armageddon,” “nuclear war,” and “the demise of a civilization.”

According to CEOs and their front groups, the fabric of our nation may well fall apart, all because of the Employee Free Choice Act.  Its opponents no longer debate the merits of the bill, and instead resort to hyperbolic vitriol intended to inflame the public and press.

In reality, the Employee Free Choice Act is a bipartisan, common sense economic recovery for working families that will pump billions into our nation’s economy.

Join SEIU’s campaign for the armageddon-provoking Employee Free Choice Act today.
