They "should be shot; should be thrown out of their #%&!@ jobs."* That's what former Home Depot CEO Bernie Marcus thinks about fellow CEOs who don't fight the Employee Free Choice Act.
Bernie Marcus has been at the front of CEOs' efforts against the Employee Free Choice Act for months, but this stunning quote shows the depths to which Marcus will sink to prevent workers from having a free choice to join unions.
Tell Bernie Marcus to stop with the threats - we need change that works for America's families, not empty words from former CEOs!

Dear Mr. Marcus,
I am writing you today to express disappointment concerning your recent remarks on the Employee Free Choice Act during an Oct. 17 conference call.
Executives have no right to harass, coerce or intimidate and even fire workers when they try to exercise their legal rights to form unions.

Without hardworking, dedicated employees, Home Depot would not be the household name that it is. These families deserve real change, not empty words from America's business leaders.
I urge you to show your pride in the workers of the company you founded by changing your tune and by showing support of the Employee Free Choice Act.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
