Notwithstanding the above discussed EFCA weaknesses it is prudent measure to support the bill given the glaring strengths which by far outweighs the weaknesses. Evidentially the bill seeks to make the employer-employee relationship more vibrant and rewarding to both sides. As boldly outlined in the preceding paragraphs it cannot escape the discernment of this paper that EFCA is the right bill created to suit the changing labor trends. That the current labor laws in the US were drafted very many years ago makes EFCA a timely measure aimed at meeting the contemporary labor challenges.
On a good note since the bill is still under scrutiny in the Congress it can still be redrafted and the weak areas fixed to make it more encompassing and water-tight from the potential manipulations by crooked employers and unions alike. After all, it is only fair to point out that the bill cannot fulfill all the whims of all the key players in the labor sector. A balanced account on the state of the local labor laws is that they need to be adjusted regularly to ensure that they remain relevant to the dynamic labor trends.
Even so, to strengthen the employees’ collective bargaining powers there is need to create strong and independent labor unions. That the bill seeks to instill a sense of democracy to enable the employees to take part in choosing the best labor unions as well as making other key decisions in a smooth, free, and fair manner underscores the above argument. Creating strong and vibrant unions will go a long way in increasing the number of employees enlisted in such unions- this will in turn lead to the creation of a more productive labor force whose.Ultimately will be a vibrant economy that is built by the pillars of fairness and efficiency.
