Ads Spotlight House Members Positions On Call Center Bill

CWA is airing a new radio ad buy, supporting Michigan Rep. Mike Michaud, who is fighting to keep good customer service jobs in America, and opposing his three House colleagues who aren't.

The spots criticize Rep. Chip Cravaack (R-Minn.), Rep. Dan Benishek (R-Mich.) and North Dakota Senate candidate Rep. Rick Berg (R) for blocking a call center bill (HR 3596) from coming to the House floor earlier this year.

"Overseas call center employees have been caught selling credit card numbers, mortgage information and even medical records. Yet Congressman Rick Berg voted against consideration of a bipartisan bill in congress to protect American jobs and consumers," one of the ads says. Listen to the audio here.

The ad buy is part of CWA's larger campaign initiative to support members of Congress who want to restore good-paying jobs, and inform the public of the lawmakers who are standing in the way legislation to curb corporate deception and outsourcing.

CWA's campaign will be active in at least 50 races nationwide, focusing on grassroots actions, phone banking and other tactics.
