Media Matters: Unions and Economic Equality Not for Us

The Washington Examiner reports that Media Matters for America is resisting efforts to unionize its staff.
Last week, the union filed a representation petition with the National Labor Relations Board, indicating that the nonprofit media watchdog organization rejected an effort by the union to organize MMFA's staff through a Card Check election.
This comes after Media Matters has decried "[r]ight-wing media outlets who have long engaged in a campaign to demonize organized labor" which "may be contributing to economic inequality" in the U.S.

It seems Media Matters isn't so hot on organized labor either and not that committed to economic equality for its staff.

Heh! Unions for thee but not for me.

But then, it's a Soros-funded thing.

On the other hand, "card check" is nothing more than an intimidation scheme.

I agree that card check is a tainted method. But, nice to see that Media Matters is feeling a little pain on the subject after getting on their high horse about right-wing media being anti-union. And I'm sure they have never breathed a word against card check when it was done to others. Even nicer that Soros may be feeling a tiny bit of pain that his money isn't getting the full bang for his buck.
