In the latest move by corporations to claim constitutional rights that properly belong only to actual, living, breathing people,

“A federal appeals court on Tuesday struck down a National Labor Relations Board rule requiring most private sector employers to post a notice informing employees of their right to unionize.”

…according to an article in Wednesday’s New York Times, which goes on to note that:

“The court relied on First Amendment rulings that prohibit the government from telling people what they must say,”

…indicating that the court here once again extended First Amendment rights to corporations, with the effect of voiding an important public-interest law, in this case, a law that sought to ensure that workers were properly informed of their right to organize into a union.
