ALERT: Contact Congress, Demand the Same Protection for Everyday Employers That They Seek for Professional Baseball

According to The Washington Post, Congress is considering legislation carving out a special exception from federal labor laws for professional baseball:

A massive government spending bill that Congress is expected to consider this week could include a provision exempting Minor League Baseball players from federal labor laws, according to three congressional officials familiar with the talks.  The exemption would represent the culmination of more than two years of lobbying by Major League Baseball, which has sought to preempt a spate of lawsuits that have been filed by minor leaguers alleging they have been illegally underpaid.

CFIF Condemns Racist Attacks and Threats Against FCC Chairman Ajit Pai Print
Tuesday, November 28 2017

 ALEXANDRIA, VA - Center for Individual Freedom ("CFIF") President Jeffrey Mazzella issued the following statement regarding the onslaught of racist attacks and violent threats against Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai and his family: 
"We at CFIF condemn in the harshest and most unequivocal terms the recent attacks against FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and his family.  Regardless of one's opinion regarding the substantive policy decisions championed by Chairman Pai to return federal internet regulation to the light-touch approach that prevailed for two decades through the Clinton and Bush administrations, which CFIF supports, there is simply no place in a civilized society for the racist attacks and threats of violence against him and his family. 
"Since becoming Chairman of the FCC, Pai and his family have suffered such injustices as trespassers photographing the inside of their home.  These latest threats and racist attacks, however, mark an obviously disturbing escalation of the transgressions against him and his family.  Even Chairman Pai's children have been threatened.   
"Such behavior must not be tolerated, and CFIF calls upon all Americans, regardless of political or policy persuasion, to condemn this escalation."
