I am surprised that TJE has not yet posted this article. Last week, the National Labor Relations Board told Boeing Co. that Boeing cannot build a new factory in South Carolina (a right to work state), but must instead build the factory in Washington state (which has unions). The reason? A Boeing official said that the company could not afford another work stoppage (not a problem in South Carolina). The NLRB immediately condemned this as unlawful employer speech. I am amazed that the NLRB has the audacity to try and tell a private company where it can build its own factory. Needless to say, Boeing has appealed the decision.
