National Chamber Legislation Center
National Chamber Legislation Center (NCLC) has brought cases to the U.S. Supreme Court and won 68 percent of the time. The U.S. Supreme Court traditionally agrees to hear fewer than 2 percent of the cases it receives for review. In the 2010/11 term, the NCLC urges the Court to review 30 cases and won 21 of these cases. A stunning 70 percent and this term they are eight for eight so far. There is no way that labor will ever win a case at the U.S. Supreme Court level – not until the wage slaves elect a president who will change the Court. We need at least one justice who will level the Court. With a labor push against the Walmarts, there will be court cases headed to the Supreme Court and the cases will be represented by the NCLC for the corporations, and labor at this time will not win before this Court. However, if the cases take one to two years to get to the Supreme Court and if we win in November this could all change for us wage slaves. If the Courts do change for labor, we need to bring our pro labor cases before the Court and rebuild the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) laws and get card check so we can start organizing workers into unions and educate them into good union people who will fight for middle class families’ way of life. With the battle of workers against Walmart starting, we will start having people and cases headed to court for years to come. I hope with the election it will be labors chance like we had when we got the New Deal, Social Security, Medicare, NLRB and union rights passed. It is our chance and may be our last chance.
