Quote of the Day: Graves on “Card Check”

March 11th, 2009 by mopns · No Comments

“Card Check throws the secret ballot and privacy rights out the door for workers. I agree with Warren Buffett that the secret ballot is a fundamental American principle. Washington should be focused on creating and preserving jobs, not passing legislation that will cost more workers their jobs.”

“Card Check” would allow labor unions to be created after a simple majority of workers have publicly signed authorization cards, and possibly without business owners having been notified. Without the secret ballot, workers could face coercion to vote in a particular way. For small businesses “Card Check” threatens their ability to create jobs. Further, the “Card Check” legislation would allow government bureaucrats to set working conditions and kill the entrepreneurial spirit.

I continue to be amazed by the further attacks on job creation and small business at a time when our economy is in a tailspin. I will not support legislation that kills jobs for Americans, and threatens small business owners. Many small businesses are already operating on razor-thin profit margins, the “Card Check” legislation would have a devastating impact on employers that are already struggling to make ends meet.” – Rep. Sam Graves of the House Small Business Committee
