What If You Could Not Leave?

Actually you can’t leave.  One of the little known "irregularities" of union membership is that you can’t take it with you. If you leave one region of the country to work in another, (or one local for another) even in the same union, in some cases you can kiss all your seniority goodbye.

So is it any surprise that the unions and their pet government bureaucracy the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the epitome of the fox in the hen house, didn’t want Boeing to move any of its manufacturing from Washington State (where employees are forced to join unions), to South Carolina (where workers have actual rights.)

Darrel Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, described it thus…

"If the NLRB had its way, then once you plant your flag in a union state, then you can never leave," said Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) during the hearing, in essence illuminating the true nature of the NLRB and the unions’ complaint against the aerospace manufacturer.

And there you have it.  Employees don’t have rights and neither do employers who are union.  The Federal government and a board of unelected lackeys will be deciding who employs who where. How this helps unions is beyond me. If the business can’t leave when a location becomes unfavorable to its business, you do what…continue to strangle the life out of it and wait for the business and all the jobs to die? Oh…that’s right! That is what you do. And then you ask the democrat party and the progressives in DC for a few billion to bail you out. Sustain what doesn’t work by force from Washington DC.   This from the party of choice.  Yeah, their choice, not yours.

Welcome to the Tyrannical Rule of The Left wing and progressives in both parties.
