The article presents author's comments on the consequences of the passing of a legislation regarding card check which would do away with the secret ballot when workers are choosing whether or not to join a union. The author says that card check is an egregious assault on basic democratic rights and an invitation to coercion. The author says that in the name of compromise, Labor's allies may drop card check, demanding in return provisions that could achieve most of their expansionary goals.
