Apparently MMFA doesn't want its employees to unionize. It has rejected letting its employees unionize by card check and retained legal counsel. Previously, they supported card check and unions.(http://mediamatters.org...)

I thought conservatives wanted to suppress unions. Which most that I know do (Because they're ran by rich people)

No thoughts on a pro-union progressive organization not wanting its workers to unionize?

I don't care if you join a union. People have a right to create and join unions due to their right to freedom of association. What unions do not have is the right to obligate workers to pay dues to them, even if they don't want to be represented by them - freedom of association also means there is freedom from association. Just as you have the right to join a union, I have the right not to join one. Allowing people the choice of whether or not to join a union is not suppressing unions, it is empowering workers to make their own choices. If a union can't survive without forced unionization or forced dues, it doesn't deserve to exist.

Sorry, I commented without reading it. Anyways, I'll read the article and get back to you.

You are not supposed to point out the double standard. That's Media Matters job.

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

Excellent! The sooner America kills all it's unions, the sooner all Americans will be earning minimum wages. And if one person doesn't like the idea of working for a starvation wage then there are lots that will! And that's the way it should be because it's all about the free market and supply and demand of labour. Right?

America's race to the bottom makes great entertainment at least!
