More on Why the EFCA Should Not Become Law
Richard Epstein's paper THE EMPLOYEE FREE CHOICE ACT: Free Choice or No Choice for Workers is available from the Manhattan Institute. It's a great resource for understanding exactly why the Employee Free Choice Act will irrevocably harm American workers and the economy.
From the executive summary:
"As constructed, the 'free choice' act excludes workers from two areas vital to their welfare: union selection and contract ratification. Its compulsory arbitration structure introduces a partial but large-scale, covert government takeover of the private sector. As America faces imploded financial markets and the highest structural unemployment in a generation, the EFCA is a misguided law that it cannot afford."
