Las Vegas Business Press (10712186);2/23/2009, Vol. 26 Issue 8, pP27
The author criticizes the provisions of the proposed legislation Employee Free Choice Act, or Card Check. According to the author, small businesses are not exempted in the legislation and that the bill also eliminates the secret-ballot process for unionization. She believes that the bill takes away the rights of employees to a secret-ballot election and that there are no time limits on unionization campaign or card collection. She thinks that the bill makes right-to-work laws obsolete and is an assault on free enterprise that will cripple the economy.
