Despite three years of failed economic and employment policies, the Obama Administration and its appointees have chosen to continue their relentless assault on private-sector employers. Rather than empowering businesses to help bring us out of this economic downturn, the White House remains committed to tilting the scales in favor of its allies, the labor unions. Nowhere is this more evident than the recent actions of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
Earlier this year, with the support of organized labor, we saw the NLRB’s Acting General Counsel attack the Boeing Corporation’s plan to create over 1,000 new jobs in a right-to-work state. Now, the labor movement is using its partners at the NLRB to once again make it easier increase union membership through the creation of “mini unions.”
