Want to get an idea of the public support of the Employee Free Choice Act? Check this out from the Philly Inquirer:

In the first week of February, both sides sent their troops to Washington to lobby in well-publicized events. Union workers delivered a petition with more than a million signatures supporting the act. The National Association of Manufacturers dispatched 50 chief executives.

One million working people in favor of the Employee Free Choice Act, or 50 CEOs opposed to it.

The latest public poll showed 73% support the bill while only 21% oppose it; that’s not quite as stark as the contrast on the Hill earlier this month, but Congress should get the picture anyway.
