Despite an advertising pressure campaign, Sen. Mark Pryor says he will vote this year, as he has before, for labor reform legislation that opens union voting. Gotta love how Stephens Media falls into the chamber of commerce jargon of referring to "labor bosses," while the real bosses are referred to far more politely as "employers."
Having been in a union organizing campaign, I can tell you that the the fat cats apply unbelievable pressure on employees and the scales are heavily tilted in their favor in just about every respect, including labor's weakened position in the work force. Labor bosses indeed.
