Boeing builds $2B plant – forbidden to use it

This is just beyond the pale!

To the best of my understanding, this is the order of ‘relevant’ events:

  • Boeing builds planes in its Seattle, WA, plant – in a unionized environment
  • in 2008, there is some labour unrest, during which Boeing publicly speculates about relocating the plant to a ‘right-to-work’ state
  • the Seattle plant is not relocated – to the contrary, it is running at full tilt
  • Boeing needs to make more planes and builds a new plant for $2Billion – locating in in South Carolina….which happens to be ‘right-to-work’ state
  • AFTER the plant is built and ready to hire 1,000 people, Obama’s National Labour Relations Board (NLRB) shuts the whole thing down because they deem it to be an anti-union move – and therefore ILLEGAL

That is right!

The plant is not ‘unsafe’ – for either the workers or the environment…

The labour unions are miffed that it is located in a state where they are not permitted to have a monopoly in the workplace:  so NLRB says that opening the plant would be illegal!!!

And you wonder why employers are not flocking into the US?!?!?

‘National Economic Suicide’ is a correct assessment:

The NLRB simply said that it could block Boeing from using the new plant as Boeing’s decision to locate it in South Carolina was in part based on a desire to avoid work stoppages and strikes, and this rationale was harmful to unions and thus an illegal act.

In related news:  at this point in time, there is not enough stuff – publicly AND privately owned – in the USA to pay off the US debt; perhaps it is now Mathematically impossible to pay the debt off!

    You can call me crazy, but I believe Obama’s plan (not his alone of course) all along has been to completely destroy the US economy from within — to bankrupt the country and turn it into little more than a third world nation.

    Yes, but….this is a new low, even for him!

    (And, by ‘new low’, I really mean ‘batshit crazy’)
