If you're reading this blog, you're probably a political news junkie. Which means you've probably heard of the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA), and how U.S. corporations are bankrolling various campaigns opposing the legislation (like this one) and Forbes' national editor called it "pro-slavery".

In the latest issue of In These Times, David Moberg's cover story offers a fantastic overview of EFCA and what it means for working Americans and our economy. And Art Levine is doing a fine job on this blog detailing breaking news surroiunding the legislation and its detractors.

Which is exactly why you should tune in to Art's internet radio show tomorrow (Thursday, Feb. 5) at 5:30 p.m. EST/4:30 p.m. CST, when his guests will be Moberg and T. A. Frank, a Washington Monthly editor. The three of them (along with Tom D'Antoni, Art's co-host) will be debating and discussing EFCA's Capitol Hill prospects. Frank argues that supporters of the bill will need to compromise on "card check" to get passage.

Progressive sparks will fly! If you miss the live webcast, just head here for the archived recording.
