Feds Say Boeing “Retaliating” Against Unions by Making Smart Business Decisions

The Obama administration is attacking Boeing for opening a plant in South Carolina – it seems our business friendly atmosphere attracting corporations is actually just part of a conspiracy to stick it to those poor union workers who just want to make a fair wage and support a communist take over of America. Why won’t we just let them win?

Washington, DC — Federal labor regulators are accusing the Boeing Co. of putting one of its assembly lines for the new 787 in South Carolina to retaliate against union workers who went on strike in 2008.

Most 787s are being assembled in Washington state by members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers.

The union has claimed that a second assembly line was set up at a non-union plant in in North Charleston, S.C.

The National Labor Relations Board complaint filed on Wednesday quotes public statements by Boeing executives saying they put the plant in South Carolina in part to avoid future labor disruptions.

The government complaint says this amounts to discriminating based on union activity.

So the administration is saying that not wanting your business to be disrupted is discrimination. Think about that for a moment – the federal government is telling you that making smart decisions that keep your business from losing money and eventually failing is discriminating against the unions – whose activities are literally designed to make businesses less profitable and ultimately shutter them. In other words not letting some commies, I mean labor activists, destroy your business is discrimination.

Obama is trying to keep jobs out of South Carolina to appease the unions. What do all you Democrats say to that?

    Shouldn’t they be high-fiving them for actually opening a plan in the US? Am I wrong for being confused by this?

    But the unions fund the Dems with member dues. No dues from this plant. It’s all about money.

    Uh… but JOBS. They’re creating/keeping jobs in the US. Surely that counts for something?

    BTW, my dad was in a Union all his life. Not only did they take his money, but they treated him like dog shit… sometimes because he wasn’t a “local”, other times because he was an immigrant (legal, BTW.) While I believe that unions have done a lot for workers in the past, I think they’ve gotten incredibly greedy and don’t care as much about their workers as they claim.

    Unfortunately there is a lot of corruption in Unions. I 100% agree that they have done great things for worker rights in the past, but maybe in this day and age there is no need for them anymore. Times change, business practices change and evolve over time, people change and evolve, but you know what hasn’t changed – the idea that big business and corporations don’t care about their workers.

    A great author (who happened to be a socialist) once wrote “power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”; George Orwell believed in socialism, but he also understood that it had it’s flaws.

    BTW – I am not a socialist… my last post seemed like I was. I just like George Orwell!

    Other than maybe Texas, I can’t think of another state I would have rather ended up in. I’ve been here 17 years now, and South Carolina hasn’t let me down yet. If the shit hits the fan in this country, I’m pretty sure we can build a wall and continue to live good lives.
