The unions would like to see Boeing go out of business apparently. Certainly they do if it means Boeing is going to build some plants in a “right-to-work” state such as South Carolina.
Since 1995, Boeing has suffered 2 billion dollars in losses due to three strikes by workers in plants near Seattle. Boeing is trying to build a new plant in South Carolina which would allow Boeing to hire non-union workers. It would be a boon for the state and the state’s unemployed who aren’t demanding more than their worth. The union workers who see their cash cow possibly leaving the state are demanding Boeing not be allowed to build the plant.
How can they do this? They union thugs are doing this through the NLRB which is interpreting old laws in new and troubling ways. The NLRB has a majority of “liberals” on the board and the leader, McChesney, is an avowed socialist who said he could easily see himself as a communist. That’s not the only problem – our President is behind this 100%.
The problem with this action is not only the thuggery & the costs; but it deprives the United States of its foundation as a free country, a free country which supports free enterprise. Free enterprise, which is rapidly becoming less free, is the bedrock of our democracy and the American Dream.
The unions want to destroy this economic system and move us into a union-controlled socialist government where capitalists do the bidding of the “workers” and I use that word “workers” loosely. These “workers” often think that other peoples’ money should be re-distributed to them, regardless of whether or not they have earned it or the boss wants to give it. They want to tell the bosses what to do without assuming any of the overhead, accountability, management, or responsibilities.
Currently, the strike in Washington state has Virgin Airlines infuriated. They had to cancel flights because Boeing did not deliver the planes they ordered. Read about this here: The Economist
