Obama’s Attack on Private Industry

Posted May 9th, 2011

You might think that a U.S. company’s decision to expand its manufacturing facilities and create 1,000 new jobs here at home — rather than overseas — would be hailed by the Obama Administration as a step in the right direction, especially with nine percent unemployment. You’d be wrong. Instead, President Barack Obama’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is doing all it can to throw a wrench in the machinery of private industry.

The story begins with Boeing Corporation’s decision to build a new assembly plant in Charleston, South Carolina, in order to produce the 787 Dreamliner, the company’s fastest selling airliner. (To date, Boeing has 800 planes on order.) The NLRB, which is charged with remedying unfair labor practices, got wind of the decision and last month filed a complaint against Boeing, alleging that the company decided to build the plant in South Carolina out of retaliation for union strikes at its Washington state facilities.

Those locations have caused difficulties for Boeing. The International Association of Machinists (IAM) regularly goes on strike during contract negotiations, causing Boeing to miss orders and costing it billions in lost business. Boeing considered building its new plant in Washington, but the IAM refused to sign a long-term no-strike agreement. That played a role in Boeing’s decision to expand into South Carolina, a right-to-work state with a good business and tax climate, as Heritage’s Rea Hederman, Jr., and James Sherk explain.

The NLRB’s actions are drawing strong criticism from Republicans in the U.S Senate. ”It’s clearly outside of the authority of this federal government to be threatening and bullying and trying to intimidate companies like Boeing who should have the freedom to locate their plants anywhere they want. It’s intimidation,” Senator Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) said Wednesday. DeMint joined with 18 senators in writing a letter to the president last week condemning the NLRB’s complaint:

We consider this an attack on millions of workers in 22 right-to-work states, as well as a government-led act of intimidation against American companies that should have the freedom to choose to build plants in right-to-work states.

If the NLRB prevails, it will only encourage companies to make their investments in foreign nations, moving jobs and economic growth overseas. America will not win the future if Washington penalizes workers in states that have discovered winning economic strategies.

But in a White House where the cozy relationship between big labor and big government couldn’t be any closer, the NLRB’s moves are just the Obama administration’s latest effort to come to the defense of the union machine. And it’s also a direct shot at private industry’s freedom to make fundamental business decisions, which has serious consequences for the U.S. economy. Hederman and Sherk write:

If the Obama Administration succeeds, it will chill business investment. Unions raise business costs and discourage employers from investing and expanding. Studies consistently show that unionized employers create fewer jobs than non-union employers. Forcing businesses to invest in states with bad business climates will cause them to scale back their investments. It might create a few more jobs for union members, but will mean fewer jobs and higher unemployment in the economy overall.

President Obama has remained silent on the issue, with a White House official maintaining that the NLRB’s complaint is an “independent agency’s enforcement action.” Governor Nikki Haley (R-S.C.) isn’t satisfied and has a pointed question for the president, as National Review Online reports.

I want to ask him why he is allowing unelected bureaucrats to come in and do the unions’ dirty work on the backs of our businesses . . . It’s hurting the jobs in South Carolina and every other right-to-work state. He owes us an answer.”

The answer to Haley’s question can be found in the Obama-big labor alliance. If the Obama NLRB prevails, it will have struck a significant blow against right-to-work states by significantly expanding labor’s ability to dictate where companies do business, all while solidifying their base of political power. The losers, unfortunately, will be private industry, job seekers and the U.S. economy.

Good Find Dennis!
It just shows, once again, how inept and stupid this man is.

At every turn his socialist agenda leads the way for him.

He is not a christian. He follows the words of a mere man
muhamed who's writing of his "VISION" of GOD is of islamic
sharia law, where the adherents KILL THE INFIDELS FOR GOD.

Frankly, I just can't Worship a GOD like their God.....

My Hope and prayer for AMERICA is that we open our eyes
and Vote on CHARACTER rather than RACE.....

Is there enough of us left to do this at the Voting Booth????

What are you doing May 22nd?

I love gravity, it always keeps my feet planted when I fly!

This has nothing to do with the IAM or what the worthless president does with this. him not being a christian or not being a muslim or anything else has any merit on this.

The IAM has made many rich here in MO. because every time they go on strike at Boeing a new machine shop opens up in the out state area.
All of the small Machine shops around here work for Boeing and do very well.
That said, I don't think that Obama cares if buisnesses move out of the country as long as they don't move to a non union state.
IT's union job or no job (for all of us) with him.

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!

Watch The Coin in The other Hand !
Got it nailed { from the BEAR }

Better pay attention as their may be a new one coming - it's the shiny coin in the other hand !

ALL are aware { gas prices are effecting the nation thru all channels of the economy } - single handed he has shut the gulf down - along with other avenues of crude. We are sitting on a Literal Ocean of IT ! Greenies just won't let us tap it.

Just imagine for a moment { please } if the price of fuel hit's almost absolute rock bottom - almost free !

Then what happens prior to an election ?? HERO ! HERO !

Now ask:: Why would the price of crude hit the lowest price in a very long time ??

Stock's are backed up in almost every refinery - people are being conservative - not buying - tankers are orbiting - for off load's in the port's.

Middle East processing facilities in almost every country are almost at an idle, due to back load of inventory stock. USA cash flow is slow . People are being cautious & the USA banks are flush with cash.

Libia Government - just torched a major portion of their standing gasoline reserve' in a major port & damaging the off load port to keep it from their own liberating countrymen.

Middle East is becoming educated with Freedom and Liberty and self govern -- they want It !

Domestic USA stock market speculators are dumping their $$ stock trying to hang on for profit as the market is heading down in almost a crash.

Here's were it get's interesting :

Just about all of the countries middle east are in some type of crisis turmoil.

Most ruled by King's, Dictators, various form's of hierarchy- socialization ect. ect.

Leader's are resigning or getting out of Dodge almost daily - think it's up too 8 individual countries that the governments have tumbled

Yet to fall ??? Guess WHo ????
Family is REALLY NERVOUS in the Middle East and Gulf - who's got the good's ???? Royal Family - House of Saudi.

Forbid the public to govern themselves' !!

Guess how many of the countries are dispersing $$$ and writing fund's to their citizen's ??? Just to behave and keep them happy.
All of them !

WHom has always been the Rent a Cop's " Blood for Oil " for their protection ??? I believe it was Carter whom signed the treaty --

Guess who's had enough ???? We are going to be pulling out along with every nut, bolt and washer and pop can.

Even the Pakie's are spooked if we are going to give them $$$$$ foreign aid they so desperately need for protection - just for getting caught protecting osama.

They are even now threatening the USA just to save face.

Let's just add a bit of spice also just for fun ::

The Middle East is not ignorant of our agricultural industry and their dependency on it. Neither is the world for that fact .

Wheat crop's were in tough shape up north due to the winter.
Major portion of the ye ole bread basket is having a epic flood along Ol Muddy - crops will be written off and not planted

Most of the corn here is slated for ethanol goofy gas - and has so little protein value it's lousy as feed with out supplement's for the live stock. Guy's here are just now getting planted - either the soil was to cold or too wet !

Can you say Low priced gas for protection with OUR blood or for our produced Food ??? We do feed the world.

Watch for the shiny coin low cost fuel for protection and food.

What can you grow over their ????
