More Political Payback

Following up on my last post about political payback, the President-Elect has nominated Rep. Hilda Solis for Secretary of Labor. She is a four-term, Democratic congresswoman from Los Angeles, California. Most telling about the nomination is the comment made by Ms. Solis at the news conference yesterday. She said "As secretary of labor, I will work to strengthen our unions." Of course, organized labor is thrilled with the proposed appointment.

So, non-union and merit shop employers take note ... it's time to gear up for a long and expensive 4 years (at least). The best offense in this situation is a good defense; by demonstrating to employees the advantages they now have under current methods of operations, it may be possible to avert disaster when the Employee Free Choice Act and its proponents come knocking on your doors.
