Mark Teixeira has a $100 million contract to play baseball with the Yankees. Good for Mark. But it’s too bad that this multi-millionaire is stepping to the plate on behalf of the union bosses by advocating for the Card Check Forced Unionism bill.
Texieira isn’t alone. Other millionaire baseball players also signed on to the advertising campaign to support the legislation that would force millions of baseball fans — the people who pay their salaries — into a union without their consent.
In this case the players are shutting out their fans from a voice in the unionization process. The players who signed on for this effort are striking out with their fan base.
Mark may know how to play first base but his support for forced unionism strikes out with 8 out of 10 Americans. But then, he only gets it right less than 3 times in every ten.
