EMPLOYEE FREE CHOICE ACT
Find out about why unions are pushing the Employee Free Choice Act. For those of us in the entertainment industry where intimidation of workers trying to organize has been rampant. Ask those in the Sports industry who organized in the mid 90's - organizing is no joke.
Once when working a non-union job I tried to get back some comp time. The executive producer just looked up from his papers and said "Don't you realize there are a plane load of freelancers circling above us who want your job?" I had been working 12 hour days for the last two months. My son had been born the year before.
These folks may not be in the same industry that we are but they have similar issues. Take a look this is a good explanation of the Employee Free Choice Act.
