Employee Free Choice Act Said To Threaten Black Business Growth

Harry C. Alford, president of the National Black Chamber of Commerce has a powerful article in Roll Call about the threat to minority-owned businesses from Project Labor Agreements and the Employee Free Choice Act. His conclusion:

We believe that enacting EFCA and other pro-union legislation will have a very negative impact on the African-American business community, on African-American employment, and as a result, on our economy as a whole. At a time when we should be focused on greater opportunities and more jobs, voting for EFCA is the wrong choice for the African-American community.
