Union Card Check Bill Will Increase Unemployment

The infamous Employee Free Choice Act, known widely as card check, has now been re-introduced in both houses of Congress. This dastardly coercion of investors, employers, and employees via a process designed to eliminate secret ballot elections to determine whether employees want to be represented by a labor union in contract negotiations, will reduce the number of employed Americans. Anne Layne-Farrar has issued a study that claims that for every 3% increase in private sector union jobs brought on by card check, the next year's unemployed rate will rise by 1%. This is a decrease of about 1.5 million jobs.
