Labor rights

The virtual labor union

Over the next decade, corporatist overlords in the NCGOP will strive to bolster a central tenet of their governing philosophy. They want to make North Carolina the least hospitable state to workers. That's Deputy Assistant Governor McCrory's expressed agenda, and it has long been a foundation of Governor Pope's slum-retailing empire.

Fortunately, what the legislature thinks about organizing workers is becoming increasingly irrelevant, with traditional union structures rapidly being supplemented - and in some cases eclipsed - by social media organizing. When that organizing is done in a fully transparent way to improve working conditions, compensation, safety, etc., the National Labor Relations Board has ruled that employee rights may be fully protected.
