Color me unsurprised by Conway's support for this. Really. How could he NOT support that job-killer -- he'd have an empty campaign war chest if he didn't.
Jack Conway Reveals Support For "Job Killer"
Conway "On Record" In Support Of Employee 'Forced' Choice Act
Louisville, KY (July 28, 2010) – Candidate for U.S. Senate Jack Conway revealed in a radio interview this morning that he supports the Employee 'Forced' Choice Act (EFCA), supports removing the secret ballot from union-organizing elections and wants to make it "as easy as possible" for Kentucky's small businesses to be forcibly unionized by means of EFCA. He reiterated his support for the legislation even as the interviewer pointed out that the legislation was a "job killer."
During the live interview on The Mandy Connell Show on WHAS-AM radio this morning, Conway said that he wants to make it "as easy as we can" for Big Labor bosses to force unionization on Kentucky workers and small businesses. Conway admitted that Kentucky has lost "100,000 manufacturing jobs in this state in the last decade," but continued to say he supports a law that both economists and job creators have told us would cost Kentucky even more jobs.
"Jack Conway is now clearly and unambiguously 'on record' supporting legislation he understands will destroy jobs in Kentucky, even while tens of thousands of those he aspires to represent in Congress can't find work," said Scott Jennings, state director of the Coalition to Protect Kentucky Jobs (CPKJ). "For the last two months, we have repeatedly asked Mr. Conway to clarify his position on this issue, to reconsider his stance and to side with Kentucky workers and small businesses. Regrettably, instead, Conway has chosen to stand with the Big Labor bosses in support of a 'job killer.'"
