This video was in Georgia, so you know that UPS was there. http://mediamatters.org/video/2015/05/22/watch-this-atlanta-tv-station-expose-alecs-infl/203745 You, your family and your fellow workers are under attack from a secretive organization that wants to make you poorer. In every state, the corporate-sponsored American Legislative Exchange Council, ALEC, works behind the scenes to pass laws that empower billionaires and corporations. ALEC pushes laws to strip workers of their rights, eradicate public education, outsource everything that can’t be nailed down, weaken environmental and consumer protections, suppress voting and increase taxes on the poor and working class while slashing them for the wealthy and for large corporations. Here’s how it works: ALEC pays for state lawmakers to attend “conferences” at lavish resorts. There they meet with corporate political donors, who also want to discuss some bills they’d like passed. Right now, ALEC boasts almost 2,000 state legislators from every state and both political parties participate in their program. Almost 100 in the U.S. House of Representatives are listed as ALEC alumni members. The current co-chair of the ALEC subcommittee on transportation is a lobbyist for the American Trucking Association. This trucking industry front has been fighting against truckers for years. In the past year alone, they have lobbied for a loophole preventing port drivers from becoming actual employees of the companies they work for and worked to eliminate lunch breaks for short-haul drivers. Of the 826 ALEC model bills brought to state legislatures in 2009, 115 were made law. Multiple ALEC-sponsored bills intended to defund unions were pushed by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in 2011.
