Palin: the business climate in the United States is growing toxic

Posted by loricalabrese on May 15, 2011

On Wednesday, Sarah Palin weighed in on the recent controversy regarding the National Labor Relation’s Board’s fight with Boeing on Facebook in a post titled, Removing the Boot from the Throat of American Businesses.

“President Obama has the opportunity to prove that he cares about keeping jobs for working class families in America,” Palin wrote. “He can speak up about his appointees at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) who have their boots on The Boeing Company’s neck. Does the President support the rights of businesses and working class people in right-to-work states to make sound decisions without government regulatory agencies unfairly punishing them?”

The controversy is over a complaint that the NLRB filed against Boeing, saying the company engaged in unfair labor practices by deciding to locate a plant in South Carolina, a right-to-work state, instead of Washington state. Right-to-work laws prohibit agreements between employers and unions that require workers to join the unions and pay dues. But the punishment is drawing the most criticism since NLRB officials want Boeing to move the 787 Dreamliner plant and the jobs that go with it from South Carolina back to Washington.

Boeing denies allegations that they picked South Carolina as the site of the second line of 787 Dreamliner production to punish its unionized workforce and Chief Executive Jim McNerney said in an opinion piece published in the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday that the National Labor Relations Board was “wrong and has far overreached its authority.”

The NLRB is an independent agency responsible for overseeing attempts by employees to organize into unions and to deal with claims of unfair labor practices by employers. The board receives complaints, in this case from the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and Senator Jim DeMint have defended Boeing and have also demanded that the president speak up about the complaint, since it could cost thousands of South Carolina workers their jobs.

Palin added, “Does the President realize the real concern here is not that businesses will choose to locate in one state over another? It’s that businesses will choose to locate in other countries because thanks to the Obama administration’s job killing policies and over-reaching regulatory boards the business climate in the United States is growing toxic. South Carolina’s Senator Jim DeMint reminded President Obama that the President said in his State of the Union address: “We have to make America the best place on Earth to do business.” I agree with this sentiment, Mr. President. If we want to keep good paying jobs for working class families in the United States then you shouldn’t pit South Carolina against Washington state because eventually every state will suffer when businesses declare “enough is enough” with these tactics and decide to relocate in more business-friendly countries.”
