Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

Jeff Merkley….A Better Man? Nope.

At a recent event where the Grim Reaper showed up to remind people that Jeff Merkley is killing democracy with his support of the Orwellian-named Employee Free Choice Act, a spectator at the event tried to reason with Mr. Merkley. The Employee Free Choice Act, or “card-check” legislation, is a bill that is being pushed by big labor union bosses and the politicians they are buying in order to make it easier for unions to organize. The bill would take away a fundamental American right; a workers right to a private ballot in the workplace.

The gentleman first tries to point out to Mr. Merkley that if he were a better man than the Grim Reaper, then maybe Merkley should leave. Assuming that if Mr. Merkley leaves the Grim Reaper will follow, the gentleman continues to try and explain his reasoning. He ends by trying to point out to Mr. Merkley that if he really wants people to vote for him and that if he wants to represent these people then he should leave and the Grim Reaper will follow.


Being the better man of the two, the Grim Reaper decides to walk away and leave Mr. Merkley to try and explain why he didn’t leave and why he supports killing democracy in the workplace.
