Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

Editorial: ERA Best Response to Minimum Wage Push

As organizations, newspapers, and others start to line up in support of the Employee Rights Act, The Washington Examiner has an interesting take on the ERA’s prospects in Congress:

The ERA is also the GOP’s best response to the Democratic-backed Fair Minimum Wage Act, which would raise the federal minimum wage to a job-destroying $10.10. It can be the perfect GOP amendment to any wage hike bill. Union leaders and their Democratic allies in the Senate and the House will be hard put when it comes to explaining why they are for higher wages for entry level workers but against protecting individual rights for more experienced employees whose interests they claim to represent.
