A group called the "Workforce Fairness Institute" is, in my opinion, is extremely dishonest in its presentation.

The WFI is spending vast sums in a push for legislation which would make it extremely difficult for workers to form unions and negotiate contracts. WFI and members are ecstatic with the downfall of the American worker toward Third World status and the vast amounts of monies they will reap for themselves.

I have worked for contractors on projects in many factories and businesses, observing their inner workings. I am totally awestruck at the savage scare tactics many of those employers used to keep their employees in line.

Sadly from what I have seen on many occasions is the fact that from the moment cards are signed and workers are allowed to vote for a Union the companies have the employees undivided attention, at which time they threaten, frighten with false information and they actually fire individuals.

It is amazing the evils you see employers perform when they have frightened employees who are in fear of their jobs.

Can working men and women afford to let titans of the business world encourage them to not look out for their self interest? These titans are people whose mind set is the same as those in the stock market and banking ,whose goal is not in the interest of working men and women but in their self indulgence. How hard is that to understand?

Workers, please wake up!! You are being manipulated by a vile force which does not have your interest and well being at heart. The "Workforce Fairness Institute" is out to get you. If you want even lower wages, vastly longer hours and more losses of health care then the "Workforce Fairness Institute" is your friend.
