The U.S. House of Representatives recently introduced legislation that would curb union abuses. The legislation, the Truth in Employment Act (H.R. 1793) was introduced by Rep. Jim DeMint (R-SC), Rep. Cass Ballenger (R-NC) and Rep. John Carter (R-TX).

This bill would amend the National Labor Relations Act to make clear that an employer isn’t required to hire any person who is not a “bona fide applicant” because the applicant is simply seeking a job to promote interests unrelated to those of the employer.
