The Nation's website accepts anti-EFCA advertising

I know the Nation has a spotty political record on the big issues over their history, but this is pretty low. A link on nation.com takes you to an anti-Employee Free Choice Act website.

The site, run by the "Workforce Fairness Institute" claims EFCA would eliminate the secret ballot in union organizing (not true). In fact, EFCA would be a historic boon for labor, which is why so many CEOs are sponsoring Orwellian organizations like "Americans for Job Security, the Employee Freedom Action Committee, and the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace" and now the "Workforce Fairness Institute" to spread misinformation about EFCA.

Hey nation.com, what the hell?
