The Newest Labor War: Union, Feds Attack Boeing
Welcome to South Carolina, the newest front in America’s organized labor wars.
On Wednesday, the National Labor Relations Board filed a complaint against Boeing, seeking to prevent the aircraft manufacturer from opening a second production facility in Charleston, S.C., for its new 787 Dreamliner.
The NLRB alleges that Boeing violated the law, opening the non-unionized South Carolina plant in retaliation against union workers for past strikes at its facility in Everett, Wash., and also as part of an effort to discourage future strikes. The NLRB wants an administrative court to force Boeing to relocate its second production line back to a unionized plant in Washington.
Needless to say, with labor controversy still roiling some states across the country, particularly in Wisconsin, news of the story rang out like a shot at Fort Sumter.
South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint denounced the move as “nothing more than a political favor for the unions who are supporting President Obama’s reelection campaign.” DeMint vowed to “use every tool at my disposal to stop the president from carrying out this malicious act.”

So the assault on capitalism continues.
This ought to go over real well in the 2012 elections, Boeing is under no obligation to open up shop anywhere for any reason and the fact that they would like to open a production facility in South Carolina should be welcomed with open arms by any real president.
Obama using the NLRB trying to force Boeing to open shop in Washington state… this is tyranny and if I were Boeing I would start to consider my overseas options.
Why doesn’t Boeing just pack their bags and move to Mexico or China?
What real incentive do they have doing business in Obama’s America?
One thing that this Boeing/NLRB fiasco clearly states, if you want to do business in America you have to do it under Obama’s terms.
