Some compromise that is: “Give us the whole loaf and we will give you a slice in return.  Plus, to show our good faith, we will give you at no additional charge some crumbs like the ones you already have.”

What kind of a compromise is that?  This is not the middle ground in the debate; it’s the middle finger to workers.

Key Questions

When all the huffing and puffing is done, members of Congress must ask themselves these key questions:

1.  Should employees be able to vote for union representation by checking the appropriate box on an authorization card? (Y/N)
2.  If a majority of employees opt for union representation, should management and labor have to bargain in good faith to reach agreement within a finite time period? (Y/N)
3.  If they are unable to reach agreement within that time frame, should a two-year arbitrated contract be imposed on both sides? (Y/N)
4.  Should employees be the ones who can move to decertify their union? (Y/N)
5.   Should allegations of unfair labor practices be resolved swiftly and finally, with possible financial penalties for violations? (Y/N)

Add up the number of Y answers.  If you had three or more Y’s, then vote for the Employee Free Choice Act.  If not, then vote against the Act and prepare to explain your vote to your constituents.

Then head out to Starbucks for a hot cup of joe.  And hope the barista does not spill it on your shirt.
