The author explains why she is lobbying for businesses to fight the Employee Free Choice Act of 2009. She says that the act puts businesses and their employees at risk as it essentially removes the secret-ballot election process and replacing it with a card check system which gives union organizers unlimited time to get the majority of employees to sign union preference cards. The author points out that this could lead to employee harassment and put small businesses in the hands of a few employees.
