    Republicans - MUH FREEDUMS

    Also Republicans - You can’t do that! Using the principals of capitalism to better yourself and not a corporation? Your labor is not yours, it belongs to the company, how dare you negotiate the price of your product! Your choice to unionize must be prohibited!

      They are the party of taking things away. It’s literally the core of any legislation or policy positions which come from their party. The fact that they claim to be against government interference in the lives of citizens or fiscal responsibility are laughable details at this point. Even states’ rights are something they believe in only when it suits them.

      They are the party of hypocrisy and regression, and all their most visible leaders are a laughingstock to the world.

        You haven’t caught any hypocrisy here. They dropped that talk long, long ago. Constituents still have the idea in their heads, but the GOP doesn’t so much as pay lip service to fiscal responsibility, small government or state’s rights.

        Can’t remember when I noticed, but it was pre-Trump. Guess it’s too easy to burn 'em in election ad sound bites.

          I do feel like states rights gets trotted out as needed, if not as often as in the past. Isn’t it their primary non-religious defense for overturning Roe?. Otherwise, I think you have a point. I suppose I don’t hear those sorts of claims often like I used to.

    They started getting jealous of all that freedom in Florida and have to catch up.

    Honestly does there exist a company that would acknowledge a union without a vote? I’ve seen instructions in emergency handbooks for someone presenting union cards that say do not acknowledge them. This law has no impact because for profit companies have no conscious.

      Yes, of course there do.

      Some smaller companies are run by people still in touch with humanity.

      Some bigger companies might see the writing on the wall and pre-empt the vote as a tactic to gain public goodwill.

      Yes, anywhere other than the US. The whole union voting thing is insane.

    If similar legislation were passed in my state I would engage in covert extremely lawful peaceful protest

    Sounds like it’s high time for the citizens of Alabama to go on a tax strike.
