    10 Years to Join a Union? Not Uncommon With U.S. Labor Laws - by Tula Connell, Political Affairs Magazine
    This example from the AFL-CIO Voice@Work staff shows how difficult it is for workers who want to join unions to do so with this country's broken labor laws. The struggle by Alabama nursing home workers illustrates why we in the union movement are working for passage of the Employee Free Choice Act, which among other things, would streamline and shorten the process for joining a union.
