Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

Jeff Merkley Refuses to Answer Tough Questions

Speaker Jeff Merkley recently ran away from a voter who just wanted to ask him a question about his support from Big Labor Union Bosses and if it unduly influenced his decision to support the grossly mis-named Employee Free Choice Act.  The Employee Free Choice Act, or “card-check”, would take away a worker’s right to a private ballot in the workplace when voting whether to unionize and open workers up to intimidation, coercion and threats by union organizers.


The voter wasn’t even able to get the question in as Speaker Merkley jaywalks across the street and quickly slithers into his car to get away. Apparently, Mr. Merkley is uncomfortable answering questions from real voters who want real answers on why he would support legislation that takes away a worker’s right to a private ballot in the workplace.
