Workplace Democracy

The Democrats in Congress have been pushing for a mode of union organizing called “card check”, which denies workers the right to secret ballots when considering unionization. This vile piece of legislation is easy to understand if you first understand the political theory of pluralism. This is simply a way of rewarding union bosses for taking money from workers and giving it to Democratic politicians. It’s easy to understand, but I’ve still been surprised that so few Democrats oppose this kind of legalized extortion. But Democrats haven’t totally abandoned principle – George McGovern is speaking out, chastising his own party. It’s about time that we hear from at least one Democrat who favor workplace democracy.
