A Pro-Management Tilt?

Further to yesterday's post on this part of the WaPo story on card check:

"It is the pro-management tilt in the current laws, unions say, that explains why only 7.5 percent of private-sector workers belong to unions, down from 36 percent in the 1950's...."

As noted in an earlier post, there is not a single employer in the country who thinks the NLRB has a pro-management bent, who breathes a sigh of relief and says, "Oh, thank God, the NLRB is involved!"

And before the unions can cry, "It's the (5-Member) Board!," let's remember one very inconvenient truth: For the 8 years of a Board hand-picked by labor during the Clinton years, union membership numbers continued to decline. Every year.

So maybe it is the product after all.
