In order for America to emerge from our economic doldrums, we need businesses and entrepreneurs to make efficient and effective allocations of capital. We need smart and industrious individuals to drive job creation, and we need government to get out of the way. Unfortunately, President Obama’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has another vision for America. They want to keep bureaucrats between job creators and new investments.

One example of this intervention is what the NLRB is trying to do to Boeing. We all know the story by now. Boeing’s new Dreamliner airplane is a great success story. So many airlines want to buy them that the company is expanding its production facilities. In addition to adding jobs at its unionized plant in Washington State, Boeing decided to build a new facility in South Carolina, a Right to Work state with lower labor costs and friendlier business climate. Shockingly, the NLRB ruled this was an “unfair labor practice” and ordered Boeing to abandon the new facility in South Carolina.
Government should never be empowered to make these kinds of decisions. Thankfully, there is a bill (H.R. 2587) in Congress to stop the NLRB from telling businesses where they can locate. It’s sad that we need a bill to protect such a basic freedom, but we do.
