Candidates Need to Address Our Issues
With the economy struggling, this debate will clearly be focused on job creation and economic growth. Candidates need to address important workforce fairness issues like:
“Quickie” elections – the NLRB has proposed cutting the time of unionization elections in a way that would rig them in favor of union bosses.
Dept. of Labor “Gag Rule” – this proposed regulation would inhibit employers from seeking legal counsel and speaking out during unionization elections.
Threats to right-to-work states – the NLRB’s threatens all right-to-work states with its actions against Boeing for creating jobs in right-to-work South Carolina.
Micro-Units – the NLRB wants to allow Big Labor to create various bargaining units in one place of work, some as small as two people.
This is a great opportunity to find out where those running for President stand on these issues.
What kinds of questions can you tweet?
- How would you change the pro-union bias that currently infects the executive branch?
- How would you stop the federal government from targeting right-to-work states?
- Will you support the rights of workers over the interests of Big Labor if you are elected?
- What will you do to end Big Labor bailouts and grow our economy?
These are just a few of the questions you can send to Bret Baier to show him the American public knows that standing up to Big Labor will help create jobs and restore our economy.
