IBD is notoriously right-leaning and anti-labour. Generally though, I think that between unions and capital, the workers are taking it up the wazoo. Nobody really cares about workers; it is all about money and power.

Flip a coin. What side did it land on? Tell a story, spin a tale.
Damn right workers are screwed. Imagine actually wanting to keep your job from going….(fill in blank.) How many didn’t have that power or voice. Union bad. Please.

re: #6 nines09

Huh?
“Union organizers reportedly are telling South Carolina Boeing workers they’ll halt a National Labor Relations Board action to shut their plant as long as the workers join their union.”

Is the above true or false?

What is your point besides not liking the union? Why not have some say? Quote; Mark Mix, President of National Right to Work, issued the following statement in the wake of the judge’s ruling:
“It is unbelievable that the judge bought the General Counsel’s argument that the employees do not have a ‘legitimate direct interest’ in saving their jobs. This is yet another example of a misguided federal labor policy that favors Big Labor and Big Business despite the flowery language about employee rights.

Big biz? I thought that was Boeing?

re: #4 Rightwingconspirator

To go a bit further, Riedel said workers have been told — or they have been led to believe — that if they unionize, IAM leadership will get the NLRB to drop the controversial complaint against Boeing.

Should the NLRB drop that case, Boeing jobs at the new South Carolina plant would no longer be in jeopardy.
