Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

Pro-EFCA Blogger Doing it for the AFL

We told you recently about some misstatements from blogger Chicago Carless, who’s pushing the mischieviously misnamed “Employee Free Choice Act,” which would end secret ballots for working Americans who are deciding whether to join a union. It turns out there’s a little more to the story, with another blogger dropping an interesting statement in his post:

I received an email from a Chicago Carless, a progressive blogger helping to organize support for the passage of the Employee Free Choice Act (H.R. 800, S. 1041) in the Senate in June. He discloses he’s doing this for the AFL-CIO, but I agree completely with his message, and will pass it along. [emphasis added]

That’s an important disclosure that was sent along in an email, but not in the blogger’s original post. Why was Chicago Carless hiding this from his readers?

P.S.: The blogger in question recently amended his original post to thank the Center for Union Facts for linking to his error-prone message. As in this case, we’re always happy to link to a document showing the folly of Big Labor’s rhetoric. We assume he will again update his post with an appropriate disclosure.
