What Would Palin DO (WWPD)? Boeing in South Carolina

Posted by villagejack on August 7, 2011

Most people living on the East coast do not recall the aerospace recession that took place on the West coast in the late 60’s. The recession was very hard on a lot of people, especially those living in and around Seattle, the headquarters for Boeing. It was estimated that Boeing needed to lay off approximately 60,000 of its 110,000 people in that Northwest area in a relatively short period of time. People could not find a job anywhere. Unlike our current administration, Boeing had to take these extreme measures in order to insure the long term viability of the company. Without managing its spending there would be no employment for anyone let alone those people who had already lost their jobs. It did and the company came back and it has grown to be one of America’s great companies who export their products around the world. Fast forward to this year where Boeing is trying to open a plant in South Carolina where the labor costs are significantly less than they are in the Seattle area. Boeing must still compete with foreign companies and must control their costs. However, Obama has asked the National Labor Relations Board of the Federal Government to file a lawsuit against Boeing for trying to make this move, saying they are doing it to avoid the union in the Northwest. This kind of government intervention in our private enterprise system is what forces our U.S. companies to ship jobs overseas. If Boeing cannot choose where and when to produce its product in the U.S in order to be competitive, then they seek lower costs overseas. How would Sarah Palin react if she were President? Of course we don’t know and don’t presume to speculate on what would be her course of action, but you know she would be on the side of our free enterprise system. Instead of having her NLRB (if she let that department survive!) she would probably let the company and the unions work out their own differences without the heavy hand of government intervention. Boeing, under Palin, would be free to open their plant and hire workers! What a novel idea that would be……creating jobs without a tax payer bailout. 2012 cannot come soon enough. Run Sarah, Run!
