CEA Reiterates Card Check Opposition
The Consumer Electronics Association Tuesday came out strongly against the Employee Free Choice Act, which was formally introduced in Congress this week. The group strongly opposes the bill, calling it "anti-innovation" and detrimental to job growth.
"On behalf of the high tech industry, I strongly urge members of Congress not to sponsor this controversial and problematic legislation that would not only take away a fundamental American right, the secret ballot, but also harm our nation’s competitiveness at the worst possible time," CEA's president and CEO, Gary Shapiro, said as part of the announcement.
"Our nation needs a robust and vibrant high tech industry. American technology companies need flexibility to innovate, rather than an environment with artificially higher wages, fewer jobs and less innovation."
