While I’m no free market hawk, I don’t think this is the answer. I think laws should be strengthen to increase workers protections, benefits, and wages, but demanding that nearly half of a company’s board be approved by employees is a step too far. Billion dollar companies don’t get to be billion dollar companies by allowing their janitors and cashiers to set policy. Also, the nature of the workplace has changed drastically and gone are the days of employees putting in 25 years at the same place of employment to retire and draw a pension. These types of employees would certainly have a vested interest in the success of the company. Nowadays, most people will have several jobs in multiple fields throughout their lifetime, so their commitment to the success of a particular company they happen to be working for at any given time is suspect. I don’t see this bill doing more good than harm.
