What's Wal-Mart so afraid of? Four words- Employee Free Choice Act

Wanted to do a write up and show our readers the new pro-Employee Free Choice Act video released by Brave New Films, luckily enough, Robert Greenwald, the director/producer of "Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price" and "Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism", has already done it for me.

From Alternet (9/12/08):
What's Wal-Mart So Afraid of? Four words: Employee Free Choice Act

What's Wal-Mart so afraid of? They're up to their old tricks, using scare tactics to intimidate employees against supporting pro-worker candidates. So what's got them backed into a corner? Four words: Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA).

EFCA would effectively enable workers to unionize and secure contracts without fear of being fired or reprisals from union-busting companies like Wal-Mart. It's a crucial bill for workers' rights. It could single-handedly restore the middle class. And it's the reason we've partnered with American Rights at Work to bring you our latest video.

Send this video to every person who cares about fairness and wants a middle class in America, and get them to sign the petition to ensure that EFCA passes. And while you're at it, let your friends know about Meet the Bloggers because today at 1pm ET/10am PT, our special guests SEIU President Andy Stern and AFL-CIO President John Sweeney will be discussing the importance of EFCA with bloggers Baratunde Thurston (JackandJillPolitics.com) and Michael Whitney (American Rights at Work).

Check out the articles below on EFCA, get informed, and join us on the show's live blog at 1pm ET/10 am PT, when we'll stand up to Wal-Mart, and stand up for workers' rights.

And if you missed any episode of Meet the Bloggers, you can also watch them in the archives.
