The Republicans latest hijinks toward their utopia of "corporations gone wild" is to try and nullify the National Labor Relations Board. They've been filibustering the Presidents 3 nominees for the board (including one Republican!) and we've now reahed the point where we have corporations filing lawsuits claiming that the decisions that the NLRB is making are invalid due to the fact that the board is shy three members. Wow, talk about stacking the deck against your average working joe! Can you please take a minute to fill out this petitiion to let your Senators know that we need a functioning NLRB?

"Rich Corp. Execs Shut Down the NLRB ! Then and Now'', by Ellen Dannin and Ann C Hodges :

''Today's labor news, complete with manufactured outrage and attacks on a government agency that protects workers - and our economy and democracy - are just part of a long tradition of giving power to the rich and taking away legal rights of the poor.'' See the link for some real historical context. Gd Lk ~
