The short answer is that Democrats and so-called “Big Labor” want to seize control of the American workplace and put themselves between workers and employers.
First, a short history:
The “Workplace Democracy Act” was first introduced in the 115th Congress by Sen. Bernie Sanders [I-VT] and Rep. Mark Pocan [D-WI]. If enacted, this law will dramatically alter U.S. labor laws at the state and federal levels.
– Radically favor labor unions
– Reshape politics and workplaces for decades (if not permanently) to favor progressive policies
The “WDA” was co-sponsors by 16 Senators and 61 House members. Of note, each of these is a Democrat. No Republican member of either the House or the Senate has signed on to the WDA.
Presidential candidates Booker [D-NJ], Gillibrand [D-NY], Harris [D-CA], and Warren [D-MA] are co-sponsors.
The effects of changes, of this magnitude, in the American workplace, will be many and varied but consider this introductory list very carefully. Then ask yourself if this is the sort of thing we should be doing to the American worker and the American employer:
- Effectively eliminates secret ballot elections
- Mandates government-imposed contracts
- Eliminates all right to work laws
- Restricts employers’ free speech through bureaucratic red tape
- Outlaws so-called “captive-audience meetings”
- Imposes obama-era joint employer standards
- Allows for secondary boycotts
- REDEFINES SECTION 2(11) SUPERVISORS TO INCLUDE MORE IN UNIONS
