Rachel Maddow on Employee Free Choice Act

H/t to Bryan at Left of the Hill for this. As always, Rachel Maddow nails the silliness of the Republican argument against the Employee Free Choice Act.

I would also like to add that currently it takes only 30 percent of workers to sign up to decertify a union - and they don't need a secret ballot to do so. As Clair McCaskill pointed out on ABC-TV's This Week, on March 8:
There is no secret ballot to get rid of a union, but there is a requirement of -- of that for people to be able to organize. And to me, that seems unfair. Let's -- let's -- what's good for the goose is good for the gander. Let's put people on a level playing field and have both businesses have to have a secret ballot to decertify. Until they do that, I'm not sure they've got a lot of room to complaint.
A level playing field - exactly what big business, the Chamber of Commerce and the GOP don't want.
