The Hidden Reason Card Check Is Dangerous–UPDATED

by Melissa Clouthier | March 11, 2009 10:00 am

Forget taking away worker rights[1], forget silencing opposition[2], forget all the money that will pour into Democratic coffers, ….yes, for all those reasons the legislation that Democrats are trying to pass are wrong.

Card check is dangerous because it’s a way to remove economic competition[3]. If every big company, in every state can be coerced into union submission, the United States becomes a uniformly inhospitable place for businesses. Northern states already bereft of manufacturing jobs figure that the companies won’t keep moving south because the south won’t be as appealing. In actuality, companies will just flee overseas which will harm the southern states just as badly as the northern states were harmed.

Card check is the worst legislation sitting in Congress right now with the most damaging long-term implications. Yes, that includes even Health Care legislation. I know. This is saying something.


Is Card Check off the table until Summer[4]?

Oh, and if you haven’t seen Biden dancing with Union Bosses[5] enjoy!
