As you may have heard, the Federal Government has brought suit against Boeing for opening a factory in South Carolina to help in production of the new 787 Dreamliner. The NLRB, acting on a complaint from the machinists union, is claiming that Boeing has opened this plant in a right to work state(meaning unions are weak) as retaliation for past strikes at their union facilities in Washington state. As far as I can tell, the NLRB has produced no evidence to support this charge, other than what some union official out west has speculated about.
So, here we go. Now the government is dictating to private business where it can or cannot set up shop. Once again, the Obama administration is sucking up to the unions who planted millions into his campaign warchest in 2008. And, potentially at the expense of several thousand jobs in South Carolina. Does this sit right with you?
On the bright side, this should go a long way in helping Obama lose South Carolina in the next election. There really is hope.
