We have a right to complain about job

If I want to go on Facebook and complain about my job, that is my right, period. This fundamental right was reaffirmed earlier this year when the National Labor Relations Board ruled I cannot be fired for speaking out about working conditions on social media.

It doesn't matter whether a person belongs to a union or not, the NLRB protects their right of free speech. Today, the NLRB literally cannot function because the U.S. Senate has yet to take the time to confirm the three Democrats and two Republicans nominated for the board -- let alone even take a vote on it.

I would be interested to know what Senator Mark Kirk thinks about all this -- and whether he thinks protecting our right to free speech here in America is something they should be considering.

We pay our elected officials to go to Washington, stand up and declare where they stand on something and vote -- correct?
