The National Labor Relations Board attack on the Right to Work has been called “frivolous,” “shameful” and “ludicrous” by South Carolina lawmakers. “We absolutely will not allow them to bully our businesses or mess with our employees. As governor, I absolutely will not stand for it,” vowed Republican Gov. Nikki Haley at a news conference a short distance from where Boeing is building a second assembly line for its new 787 jetliners.
Right to Work champion U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint, R-South Carolina, said later he was amazed by the NLRB.”This means inside our own government is union thugs trying to bully and intimidate,” DeMint said. “The signal they’re trying to send to any company in America is if you move to a right-to-work state, they’re going to make it painful for you.”
