McGovern vs. Big Labor
by

You heard that right. During one of the commercial breaks during Fox News Channel’s coverage of the debate tonight, George McGovern will take to the airwaves to speak out against the deceptively named Employee Free Choice Act, which in reality would deny workers the ability to secret ballot votes on unionization, and thus allow union bosses to intimidate workers into voting to unionize. Should Obama win, this will be at the top of the agenda, because Democrats want to reward their buddies in big labor, and if unions are able to rapidly increase their membership it will boost contributions to Democratic candidates and solidify the party’s grip on power. The ad is on behalf of the group EmployeeFreedom.org. Evidently, Democrats have moved so far to the left, that even McGovern has been forced to speak out.

Here’s the script, with the video below:

I’m concerned about a bill on Congress that would that would effectively eliminate an employee’s right to a private vote when deciding whether to join a union. It’s hard to believe that any politician would agree to a law denying millions of employees the right to a private vote. I’ve always been a champion of labor unions but I fear that today’s union leaders are turning their backs on democratic workplace elections I’ve listened to all their arguments and reviewed the facts on both sides. Quite simply this proposed law cannot be justified. Working families deserve a voice and a private vote. I’m Sen. George McGovern and I approved this message because democracy is something that should never be sacrificed.
