I was appalled to learn that Dennis Cardoza is a co-sponsor of a congressional bill that will deprive workers of a fundamental right in a democracy, that of a secret ballot. He wants to allow union organizers to twist arms of workers to force signing of a card that will eliminate any secret ballot. If more than half of workers sign such cards, the others are forced to join the union and pay dues regardless of their views. Cardoza has done some things that are good, but this action is so threatening to our democracy that he should be expelled from any public office.
