Biz Reply To Card Check: “It’s Incredible”

In a Daily American news story suggesting that a vote on the Employee Free Choice Act may be imminent, ABC member Brett McMahon offers thoughts on how important this fight is:

“It’s as big a deal as it seems,” confirmed Brett McMahon, vice president of Miller and Long Construction of Bethesda, Md. “It’s a game-changer that I don’t know if the American economy could recover from.”

McMahon is a member of Associated Builders & Contractors, a national trade organization whose members have been galvanized by the prospect of the bill’s passage.

“This is the most organized and unified that American employers have ever been,” he said. “It’s incredible.”

One of the key problems, says McMahon, is that the current system is already heavily skewed in the favor of union organizers but union officials have not necessarily adapted to a competitive world:

“(Small businesses) have to be nimble and flexible in their costs,” McMahon said. “Labor unions have not figured out a way to deal with that.”

He added that this reduction has led to a retirement and pension crisis for labor organizations.

“If you understand the Social Security problem, then you understand their problem,” McMahon said.
