"Friend of Labor" Speaks Out Against Card Check
In case you missed it...
Former senator and Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern comes out against Card Check in this op-ed from the Wall Street Journal. McGovern, a self-professed "longtime friend of labor unions," decries the Card Check bill as "counter to ideals that were once at the core of the labor movement." He builds his critique of the Card Check proposal around the central American philosophical value of freedom. Freedom to form an opinion and vote, freedom from intimidation and fear of reprisal; all of which Card Check would put in jeopardy for American workers.
