Next up in this week’s series of employment law-related debate questions for the candidates: Vice President Joe Biden.

  • One of the big ideas of the administration early on was the Employee Free Choice Act. It’s an act that you publicly showed strong support for. The bill never passed and some of the ideas regarding “card check” seem on life support. What happened with the bill? What lessons have you learned from its defeat and do you still support its provisions, even if it is done through administrative rule changes, rather than legislation?
  • Why do you support the Paycheck Fairness Act? And why is that bill needed in light of all the other laws already on the books preventing pay discrimination, including the Equal Pay Act?

So, what do you think? What questions would you ask Vice President Biden related to employment law.
