Many workers in South Carolina are employed by the world’s largest aerospace manufacturer, Boeing Co. Boeing defied the National Labor Relations Board, when they opened a new $750 million assembly plant in South Carolina.
The National Labor Relations Board did not accept this move without putting up a fight. The National Labor Relations Board is alleging that Boeing violated labor laws by locating its new 787 Dreamliner facility and the board has filed a suit against Boeing Co. saying that the placing of the plant in SC hurts states’ abilities to keep manufacturing jobs.
House Republicans say the board shouldn’t have power to dictate where a private business can locate.
In addition, the Obama administration’s continued deference to its political allies in Big Labor — instead of the innovators and entrepreneurs that have made America great — only serves to fuel the uncertainty that is keeping investors on the sidelines and people out of work.
