Our "friends" at Americans United for Change appear to have finally dropped this "we're an anti-war group" nonsense and come clean about what they really exist to do: push legislation favored by Big Labor. From the latest AUC press release:
"Americans United for Change will deliver a damning new report this week to eight key U.S. Senators detailing the disturbingly systematic union-busting practices of Wal-Mart, the largest private employer in the United States, including intimidating, harassing and even illegally firing employees who attempt to exercise their right to freedom of association.
The report, prepared by Human Rights Watch, will be delivered to U.S. Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Susan Collins (R-ME), Olympia Snowe (R-ME), Gordon Smith (R-OR), Norm Coleman (R-MN), John Sununu (R-NH), Pete Domenici (R-NM), and George Voinovich (R-OH) in their home states as part of an ongoing effort to convince them to support the Employee Free Choice Act.
