Most Americans are tired of the senseless gridlock and obstructionism in Washington, D.C. It seems like there is no end. Fortunately, gridlock can be overcome if common sense is utilized. Sen. Mark Kirk can take a meaningful step in the right direction in the next few weeks. All he has to do is cast a vote affirming our right to free speech.
A few months ago the National Labor Relations Board ruled that employees cannot be fired for speaking out about working conditions on social media sites like Facebook. The rub is that today, the NLRB cannot protect any American from attacks on their most fundamental right because the United States Senate has yet to confirm three Democratic and two Republican appointees put forward by President Obama.
Sen. Kirk, this is not politics, this is common sense. Do what you were elected to do and vote to allow the NLRB to continue to function and protect the rights of American workers. Confirm all five nominees to the NLRB.
CWA representative and Illinois legislative coordinator
