The author looks at the move by some U.S. politicians who were elected by secret ballot to support the organized labor's proposal that will remove the right of Nevada workers to vote freely. He says that the proposed abolition of secret elections in unions is what the Employee Free Choice Act would do. Under such plan, union agitators would force employees to sign in a card which indicates that they want the union to represent them. It explains the effect of such proposal on workers in nonunion firms such as Wal-Mart and McDonalds.
