Obama Administration Forcing Corprations Into Pro-Union States

It's hard to sympathize with Boeing, since it is at the core of the Military-Industrial Complex, but if the Obama Administration feels comfortable messing with Boeing for a few more union dollars, imagine how they'll mess with those who don't have the clout and access to the Administration that Boeing has.

Michael Barone explains the deal:

So the Obama administration is now telling companies where they can build their factories. That’s the takeaway from the National Labor Relation Board’s action challenging Boeing’s ongoing plans to set up a plant in North Charleston, South Caroline, to build the 787 Dreamliner. The NLRB doesn’t like this because the plant won’t be unionized and won’t be subject to strikes—like the 58-day strike in 2008—which shut down Boeing plants in Washington state...

Obama’s motives in both cases are clear...  Keep the union dues money going into unions which contributed $400 million to Democrats in the 2008 cycle.


  1. I live in SC and while our state is desperate for jobs & industry I won't be shedding any tears for corporate welfare queen Boeing over this litigation/power play.

    Live by the sword, die by the sword.

    I wish the dollar would accelerate its collapse so we could start over and get back to work quickly.

  2. Another successful public-private partnership!

  3. President Jintao & Premier Jiabao & the Chinese Airlines manufacturing industry Give a big thanks to President Obama for this.
