National Labor Relations Board To Boeing: You Must Stay In Washington State At The Mercy Of Unions

As Charles Gibson might say, 'Freedom? Never heard of it."

The US National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) says it will seek an order to require Boeing to place the second 787 production line in Washington state, in response to charges filed by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) 17 months after Boeing selected North Charleston, South Carolina to host the site.

Acting general counsel Lafe Solomon says the NLRB "found reasonable cause to believe that Boeing had violated two sections of the National Labor Relations Act because its statements were coercive to employees and its actions were motivated by a desire to retaliate for past strikes and chill future strike activity."

Because the right to strike should never had any negative repercussions for the poor workers. Hell, if they give up their jobs voluntarily, liberals think you should pay more to subsidize their strike. In liberal fantasy land, union members should be able to ruin the business that provides them with work at absolutely no cost or risk to themselves. Only rich, greedy, capitalists should have to assume risk. And hey, should those risks actually lead to some rewards, well, hand them over 'for the common good'.

And what about people who want to work in South Carolina? To hell with them because they aren't really 'workers'. How could they be if they aren't in a union? And every dollar of wages not confiscated in the form of union dues is money that won't ever be funneled to Democrats like Obama.

Government picking economic winners and losers based on nothing more than political power. What could go possibly go wrong?

Added: Slu points to this Instapundit entry which notes that two of the Democratic members of the NLRB were recessed appointed and never subjected to Senate confirmation.

Wherever did Rep. West get the idea that Obama is as arrogant as a third world dictator?

BTW- The House tried but failed to defund the NLRB. Yeah, they wouldn't have gotten it by the Senate or Obama but we need to lay down some more out there markers. We'll eventually win one or two. This would be a good chance to try again, no?
