INDIANAPOLIS –– The NFL Players Association is opposing Indiana Republicans' efforts to pass a divisive labor bill before the nation turns its attention to the state for the Super Bowl.

The players association said Friday that Indiana Republicans are trying to "ram through" the legislation before Indianapolis hosts the Super Bowl on Feb. 5.

Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma has set a quick timetable for passing the measure but has been stymied by House Democrats who entered their third consecutive day of blocking the measure Friday.

Bosma and other Republicans say they gave ample airing of the issue during 20 hours of legislative hearings over the summer. They contend the measure is needed to attract more businesses to the state. Opponents say it will drive down wages and reduce union membership.

I can understand that the Colts would be opposed to anything that has the word "work" attached to it.

I'm getting hassled at work for not filling out a petition against this. I am in a union. What I don't get is why would you sit on your rear and no do anything at a union shop and not feel wrong about it when if you did the same thing in the non0union shop you would get fired for it? That is one reason why I am undecided on this subject.

Just about every single one of my co-workers complains about not making enough money. I moved to get the job I have. If I were to go back to where I grew up I would be lucky to get a job the same as what I do that makes half of what I make. I make very good money, I'm just tired of the entitlement bs that I get from all my co-workers.
