New York Times: Big Union Shill

The New York Times fancies itself has a defender of civil rights and civil liberties. But when it comes to free and democratic elections for workers, they clearly are on the other side.

In an editorial entitled “A Hopeful Year for Unions,” the Times opines on the Card Check Scam Bill:

A bill that would have made it easier for unions to organize workers died in the Senate last June. Congress should take up this issue again to stop companies from using threats and other aggressive tactics to keep organized labor out, and to help win workers their rightful share of the economic pie.

Using threats and other aggressive tactics?

The bill eliminates a worker’s right to a secret ballot election to decide whether to unionize or not. Since when is voting considered a “threat” or an “aggressive tactic?”
