Big business has a lot of money to spend on lobbying members of Congress and spreading misleading statements about EFCA so it is extremely important for grassroots supporters to help educate the public and elected officials about why this legislation is so important. That is why I'm very glad to see that Miles Grant, who is running for the House of Delegates and writes for The Green Miles, is addressing this concern.
It’s a sad statement about how little we value workers’ ability to organize for a better deal that even minor process changes in union organization are met with such fierce, over-the-top resistance from big business and its allies on Capitol Hill.In my opinion, this comes down to the simple fact that we need to stand up for workers' rights. It appears as though Miles understands this and is doing his part to educate the public on the issue. This is just one of the many reasons that I personally believe Miles would make an excellent member of the House of Delegates and I look forward to another strong progressive joining Virginia's General Assembly.
A local organizer from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has asked for our campaign’s help to let our leaders know that we support the Employee Free Choice Act. We're hosting an event on Saturday at 1pm to write Senators Warner and Webb to urge them to support it. Hope you can join us!
