Minority business groups coming out against card check

Two hours ago, I watched a Fox News Channel interview of Harry C. Alford. He's the president and CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, and during that interview he said the Employee Free Choice Act, better known as card check, is "a business killer."

Alford has great concern about what card check would to black construction firms--only two percent of them, Alford says, are unionized. A recent study declared that the EFCA would increase unemployment--which of course is already quite high.

Last week, as The Hill reports, three groups, Alfords' chamber and the the National Association of Black Hotel Owners Operators and Developers, and the Asian American Hotel Owners Association announced a campaign to stop card check.

Regular Marathon Pundit readers know that many mid-level and budget motels are owned by Asian Americans. These are the type of properties I stay in during my blog-o-vacations.

Card check effects me--and it effects you.
