Yes, This Is Happening In America

From YahooNews:

The National Labor Relations Board on Friday threatened to sue Arizona, South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah over constitutional amendments guaranteeing workers the right to a secret ballot in union elections.

The agency's acting general counsel, Lafe Solomon, said the amendments conflict with federal law, which gives employers the option of recognizing a union if a majority of workers sign cards that support unionizing.

The secret ballot is too stringent a requirement.

The solution to this move, then, is the passage of right to work laws. After all, such laws are unambiguously legal under federal law, and forbid any individual from being forced to pay even one thin dime to a union they do not support and do not wish to join -- not even an agency feel.

So the union thugs can strong-arm as many folks into the union by card check as they want -- they still can't force those with the 'nads to say "no" into membership when they have laws codifying their right to not associate with the union.
