In Pennsylvania, the unions are rallying to support card check, or what they like to refer to as the "Employee Free Choice Act."
Some local business leaders are going to be rallying with them. The news media there notes
Business leaders will gather in Hanover Township, Lehigh County, this afternoon in support of the Employee Free Choice Act.
The roundtable will be held at 5 o'clock this afternoon at Airport Pizza, 3360 Airport Road, and attendees will express support for federal legislation pending before Congress that will give workers the freedom to form unions and hold corporations accountable. U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa., has indicated he wants to hear feedback on the act, and the business owners intend to let him know they support it and he should too, according to a news release.
One of the most vocal local business leaders is a guy with the delightfully adult film-ish name of Erv Fetherman. Mr. Fetherman is cited in the Express-Times as the owner of some business called the "Mail Room," which is a unionized company already.
They probably could not, in a mainstream news outlet, write about Mr. Fetherman's other business.
Well, at least I assume Erv Fetherman who owns the Mail Room is the same Erv Fetherman that owns "Erv's Girls" some 39 feet away from the Mail Room (and yes, it is the Mail Room, not the Male Room).
Erv's Girls — no word on if it is unionized — claims to be a BYOB strip club where you can't touch the ladies, but couples are always welcome. If it is the same Erv Fetherman, he's also been arrested for selling drugs to his strippers.
Perhaps the union representatives should find more upstanding businessmen to support their efforts to destroy private enterprise.
