Obama's Attack on Private Industry


blog.heritage.org

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.
Senator Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) said Wednesday. DeMint joined with 18 senators in

Let’s be very clear what is happening here: Boeing is NOT going to shut down any jobs in Washington State. It is simply wanting to increase production for its 787 Dreamliner by opening a similar production line at its South Carolina plant. No jobs will be lost in Pugent Sound, not one. As a matter of fact, Boeing has added 2,000 union jobs to its Pugent Sound plant in the last 18 months.
But Obama has put a union thug in charge of the NLRB. And all companies, when they allow union shops, agree to abide by the mediation decisions of the NLRB in the event of a union/company standoff.
The position of the union thug that heads the NLRB is that is will cost Boeing too much in lost production to fight him in court. But Congress is about to get involved in this over reach by the NLRB.
Boeing should tell Obama “Fine, you don’t want us to create jobs in South Carolina? Then we will create jobs in Mexico, or China, where we don’t have to deal with union thugs that have been appointed to jobs with no Congressional approval.”
In six years, Boeing has had to suffer through two union strikes. The workers then gain all wages lost during a strike by working overtime after the settlement, at higher wages. It is a win-win situation for unions that are out of control while 14 million Americans are out of a job.
Add this action to the recent Presidental Directive that all companies who hold government contracts (including the small company that provides toilet paper and paper towels to any government facility, as an example) will have to reveal any and all donations made to any political entity by that company’s employees. So if you work for a company that distributes paper towels to say, the Native American museum, and you donated $25.00 to the RNC, that company will have to make that information available to the administration.
Intimidation seems to be the tactic that this administration uses to kill American jobs.

Well of course Obama doesn't want it built in SC. That would create jobs...here...can't have that.

Do you have a source for this? Because I have heard of many layoffs in Washington.

Boeing Cuts 2000 Jobs (Jan 2010)

And about the complaint, what is intimidating about it?



To remedy the alleged unfair labor practices, the Acting General Counsel seeks an order that would require Boeing to maintain the second production line in Washington state. The complaint does not seek closure of the South Carolina facility, nor does it prohibit Boeing from assembling planes there.

I'm not seeing how this complaint is intimidating anyone... If they allow the second plant in SC, but protects the jobs of those in Washington, I'm not sure I understand the problem.

Is there something I'm missing?

The source is obviously a conservative, right-wing front organization run by the Koch Brothers.

Nice source, pal. Love how they use Obama when the subject has nothing to do with him.

Make no mistake, Boeing is leaving Washington State. They began leaving several years ago when they relocated their corporate headquarters to Chicago. Boeing has been steadily moving jobs out of WA for more than a decade due to the high labor costs, anti-business climate and poor infrastructure. Good for them.

Boeing has consistently made promises to WA about jobs in the state and when the rubber hits the road, move the jobs out of the state. Just a year or so ago, all of the wing assemblies for the 777 were to be built in WA and were moved, first only 25% and then all of them to South Carolina.

Boeing is playing a long game here, with a 10 year time horizon, so hiring a few jobs in the short term is no big deal, they are slowly but surely moving out of WA. I recently moved out of WA after spending over 10 years in the Puget Sound area. Ask folks at Boeing and they will tell you - Boeing's gone and its the government and the union's fault.

Obama is going to attempt to use union thuggery to influence private corporations and is becoming increasingly hostile towards those states who are not in his camp, as evidenced by his decision not to grant FEMA status for the Texas wild fires or send one of the retired space shuttles to Houston. This is but another example of the heavy handed practice, right out of the Chicago playbook.

You're right, the jobs will either be in South Caroling or Mexico, where Boeing already has substantial operations going. Boeing needs to hold firm and they will. The only other card the administration can toss at them is the awarding of government contracts to Airbus and that won't happen

So I live in Washington state. And I just found this out recently that we give Boeing and microsoft huge tax breaks and when I say we I mean Washington state. We give them these tax breaks so for number 1 that they stay in Washington. and then number 2 which is my reason so that Microsoft and Boeing are a washington state thing. Just like when you think of Pittsburgh you think of the steel industry. At least for me anwyays.

It is the timing of NLRB's complaint, in fact, which seems retaliatory in nature, not Boeing's business decision.

The complaint comes a full seventeen months after Boeing announced the location of the new facility and thirteen months after the union leadership first asked NLRB to look into the issue.

Boeing has already begun construction of the new facility, hiring over 1000 people in South Carolina and investing $1 billion. This complaint puts all those jobs created and all that money invested at risk.

At least righties can't complain about bias anymore when they display it themselves via such front organizations, etc.

The source is obviously a conservative, right-wing front organization run by the Koch Brothers.

Nice source, pal. Love how they use Obama when the subject has nothing to do with him.


Thank goodness there's somebody to counter the POTUS' obvious attacks on the private sector. He is the ultimate Big Government, Big Union, Big Socialist guy on the block and he's exercising his muscle.

Give me a break and at least try to think on your own. Calling Obama anti-business is like calling Lady Gaga the church lady. Use your friggin' brain. Obama has channeled more of your tax money no strings attached to the big banks, his administration looked the other way with BP in the Gulf, under his admin the mining companies are raping whole moutain ranges and allowing methane gas to be channeled into people's tap water. Under Obama the big defense companies are richer than ever, the banks, big oil, etc. have record profits and his staff revolves in and out of big business.

Like it or not, if you were able to do more than parrot FOX News you'd see that Obama and Big Business are one and the same. You, me, we are collateral damage and objects from which to take money to give spread in among themselves.

...and also, you apparently are not informed enough to know that the SC politicians decided not to give in to Boeing's extortion and did not give them all the tax freebies poor old Boeing insisted. Boeing is just another major American business that is a blight on society and interested in its continuous growth and profits without regard to anything else. Big Business will and does ROUTINELY indirectly kill so long as it can make a buck. We've let capitalism go insane. All you 5th grade economists don't try to lecture me about the "free market." Even real capitalist doctrine gives the people the right to exercise their free will if they believe a business is acting contrary to society. Somehow, all you arm chair "capitalists" forget to learn the basics of civil society from which the corporations are granted their status.
