|Video: Chris Hayes on Wal-Mart and Why We Need the Employee Free Choice Act|
On Keith Olbermann's "Countdown," Hayes said:
It’s delicious that they [Wal-Mart] show exactly why the Employee Free Choice Act is so needed. The mechanism of intimidation an employer has over an employee is so powerful that running a union election has become incredibly difficult, almost impossible.
As AFL-CIO NOW explains, Wal-Mart's worker indimidation may have just backfired, energizing Employee Free Choice Act supporters and amplifying the national discussion about worker indimidation by anti-union companies like Wal-Mart.
Incidents like this also debunk the absurd idea that opponents of the Employee Free Choice Act have democratic principles or workers' best interests in mind. Would anti-union corporations, the Chamber of Commerce, and right-wing front groups really spend millions of dollars to protect workers' rights? We don't think so.

32%of workers lack a collective bargaining agreement one year after voting for union representation, due to weak labor law enabling employers to avoid bargaining with employees.
