What the U.S. government calls outreach could shock you. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has signed agreements with the countries of Mexico, Ecuador and the Philippines to spend our tax dollars training illegal and legal immigrants in union activism.
Why it had to be a formal signed agreement with the three countries is a mystery. We won’t see reciprocity.
The deal was signed with Mexico in 2013 and with Ecuador and the Philippines added later on.
The five-member board is run by Democrats and they are paying off the unions who need members. They also want more dues and are looking to future voters. The Democratic party and unions have a crony socialist relationship.
The illegal and legal immigrants will be taught how to communicate for assistance, to learn their rights, and how to keep a job as an immigrant.
They will also be taught how to assist the NLRB in investigations, trials, and compliance involving businesses. They will learn how to refer complaints to the NLRB.
If only they would work as hard at teaching them how to assimilate into our country.
The numbers of U.S. employees from these three countries is relatively small compared to Canada, the U.K. and Japan. However, an astounding number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. come from these three countries.
Last month, the NLRB instituted a new policy to help facilitate visas for illegals. The visa policy incentivizes illegal immigrants in the U.S. to engage in labor activism so employers won’t fire them and they can get their visas and consequent legal status.
Companies that hire illegal immigrants best understand that they won’t be able to fire them easily.
For instance, in 2009 the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) issued a controversial order making a workplace English rule illegal. The directive came after the EEOC bullied a national healthcare firm to pay nearly half a million dollars to settle a discrimination lawsuit in which the government alleged that Hispanic workers were punished for speaking Spanish.
Last June, an American company, Green Bay Wisconsin metal and plastic manufacturer, was sued by the EEOC for firing Hmong and Hispanic immigrants who couldn’t speak English because of this rule. If they don’t need English to perform their duties, they don’t have to know the language, even if the supervisor can’t communicate with them.
Many other rules like this have been put in place since Barack Obama has been in office.
The EEOC and NLRB gave gone from protecting to advocacy for far-left causes.
