NLRB's Roach Motel

You have to figure that the brain trusts at the National Labor Relations Board didn’t think about the impact that their efforts to punish companies that move to Right to Work states would have on non-Right to Work states.

But those arguments became front and center at a House hearing on the issue when Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) said “New businesses won’t want to locate in union states, because the same thing that is happening to Boeing will happen to them. It creates the impression that we dont want to start up in those states, because once we grow up were stuck.”

The NLRB decision essentially creates a “Roach Motel” for companies that decide to locate in non-Right to Work states — they can check in but they can never check out.
