President Barack Obama's National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is considering a rule that would force private businesses to turn over their workers' personal information -- such as phone numbers, email addresses, and work schedules -- to union organizers.
While this rule would be intended to make it easier for union bosses to organize workers at businesses that do not have a union presence, it would also have the unintended effect of making workers vulnerable to harassment.
The Heritage Foundations James Sherk argued this will allow union organizers to bother workers even after the worker tells an organizer "no" by bombarding them with phone calls, emails, and visits to their home.
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka has already said unions would demand card-check legislation from Obama during his second term. Card-check would essentially end secret ballot elections and force workers to vote on whether or not to join a union in front of their colleagues and union bosses, making them more susceptible to peer pressure, harassment, and intimidation...

Union Hack: “That’s a nice job you have there Mr. Smith, it would be shame if something happened to it.”
As a business owner who has about 275 employees its a scary thing to know that a card check program could kill my 108 year old business. I was told by my Father who fought the teamsters back in 1973 and won the strike against our company to just close it if it ever got reorganized by the unions again. Today at age 88 years of age he holds the same point of view.
Obama will destroy the family and small business person in America. I have never wanted to sell our business but it might be time to do so. Why worry about 275 employees and their families when I just have to worry about my 8 members of my family.
Right to work state plus no state 0-care exchange would be the best place for medicine to flourish now. The differences could be amazing. Then if such a state, like TX, enacted some legislation requiring menu pricing, we could see a very competitive, high quality and productive healthcare market emerge in that state. Doctors, wealthier patients, and businesses would relocate to take advantage of better conditions.
