The newly reintroduced Employee Rights Act puts workers first
Congressional and Senate candidates are off to the races for the midterm elections. Billions of dollars will be spent leading up to November to fund political operations and advocacy. And if history is any indication, labor unions and their bloated bank accounts will be intimately involved.
Beyond supplying campaigns with foot soldiers, since 2010, unions have spent more than $1.6 billion in members’ dues money (typically without their agreement) to benefit left-wing special interests. Money that went to conservative or bipartisan causes represented a comparative very small drop in the bucket. Keep in mind this is in addition to the hundreds of thousands of PAC dollars unions sent to political candidates — again overwhelmingly Democrats.
