McCain: Employee Free Choice Act Is A ‘Threat’ To ‘Democracy

Today in an interview with CNBC, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) blasted unions:

Quote:
But this is — we’ve been talking about it for a long time — this is a threat to the fundamental of labor-management relations. It’s fundamental to democracy, the right to have a secret ballot.

The way that Senator Obama envisions — and the unions, and this is their big push, they’ve gotten commitments from Senator Obama and Senator Biden — union organizer goes to your house and says, Hey, Joe, can I sign you up for the union?

That is — we all know what that opens the door to. It’s dangerous for America, it’s dangerous to small business. And I think it’s a threat to one of the fundamentals of democracy.


McCain added that he would veto the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) in a “New York minute.”

Watch it:



Despite McCain’s claim, the EFCA preserves workers’ rights to secret balloting. However, it also gives workers the option to form a union through a “card-check” system, in which a union would be recognized if a majority of workers signed a petition testifying to their desire to organize.

Well, you know we don't need the peons like organizing to dispute unfair practices of their overlords. We don't need peons thinking and shit. Come on, this is commonsense democracy saving stuff here.

It's too late, Johnny. People, by and large, are ignoring your scare tactics.

God, he's so much like "Chicken Little".
