House Committee Holds Field Hearing on NLRB Complaint

In Charleston, South Carolina this afternoon, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will hold a field hearing on the National Labor Relations Board’s complaint against Boeing.  You can watch the hearing here.  It begins at 2 p.m.

This morning in the Washington Examiner Diana Furchtgott-Roth, former chief economist at the Department of Labor, makes a key point.  She writes,

If the NLRB decides in favor of the union, higher unemployment will be a permanent facet of the American economy because more manufacturing plants will be located overseas.

Firms will be less likely to build plants in America if an unconfirmed acting general counsel of an obscure regulatory agency can rule their use is illegal.
