Pass legislation that favors working class, not fat cats

To the Editor:

We must have the passage of the Employee Free Choice Act.

This bill would help stimulate the economy by helping workers form unions that would increase wages and benefits for the working class. The workers of our great country have suffered long enough at the hands of greedy corporate executives.

Corporate executives will vote to increase their salaries and neglect the hard-working Americans. We must not allow this trend to continue. It is time for the working class to take back our country. The Employee Free Choice Act will put the money in the hands of the people who can improve our economy. Let’s stand together and fight corporate America.

Please insist that Sens. Jim Webb and Mark Warner support this important legislation.
