Ron Paul releases Statement on Jobs ahead of GOP debateSubmitted by bobbyw24 on Mon, 09/12/2011 - 14:44
Texas congressman Ron Paul released the following statement:
With jobs so hard to come by for many Americans, you would think a private company deciding to create more than 1,000 jobs would be cheered by Republicans and Democrats alike.
But President Obama’s National Labor Relations Board is doing everything it can to stop Boeing from opening a new plant in North Charleston.
And as sad as it may seem, at the heart of the board’s actions is political cronyism at its absolute worst.
Since South Carolina is a right-to-work state, workers at Boeing’s new plant can’t be forced under the threat of losing their jobs to hand over a portion of their hard-earned money to union officials in dues.
The labor board’s attempt to force Boeing to stay in a non-right-to-work state where the union bosses can force workers to pay up or be fired is political payback for their undying support during the last presidential campaign.
