Right Hand Questions the Left Hand — Undercutting the NLRB
Talk about being on a limb — even President Obama’s pick for Secretary of Commerce opposes the National Labor Relations Board attempt to punish Boeing for opening a facility in a Right to Work state. From the Washington Post:
Republicans asked Bryson about the National Labor Relations Board’s suit against Boeing, which accuses the aircraft builder of opening a plant in South Carolina in retaliation against union workers in Washington state. Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., said the NLRB action was “an unprecedented violation of a company’s ability” to locate its facilities where it wants to.
“I think it’s not the right judgment,” Bryson said of the NLRB suit. He said Boeing officials were surprised by the legal action and said they believed they were “doing the right thing for the country” by keeping jobs in the U.S. and not moving them abroad.
