    From Yahoo! News:

    I'm confused here. How do employers intimidate those who vote to start a union in a secret ballot? Seems to me intimidation is far easier if everyone has to publicly declare which way they're voting. But then again, I guess that's what the Democrats are trying to accomplish here.

    I don't know what the 'law' says, but people that want to join together and form a group, any kind of group, are free to do so on their own time (not on the clock), and off of the property of the workplace. If only private property were respected....

    It's a guess, but I bet Union Laws force the employer to provide time and property for union organizers to petition/persuade other workers.
