As Nick Gillespie noted earlier, the future of the pro-union Employee Free Choice Act, or "Card Check," isn't looking so bright at the moment. But as Fox News reports, that isn't stopping the National Black Chamber of Commerce and other minority business groups from speaking out against it:
Speaking at the National Press Club, the group said the bill, which will eliminate secret ballots for workers voting on organizing union shops, will cause job losses and is "un-American."
"This piece of legislation will cost us 600,000 jobs," said Andy Ingraham of the National Association of Black Hotel Owners….
"It is extremely wrong for a government-appointed arbitrator to decide how an American runs his business," added Ash Patel of the Asian American Hotel Owners Association.
Harry Alford of the National Black Chamber of Commerce said the business leaders are not going to rest despite claims that the bill does not have the support it needs to pass on Capitol Hill.
