Breaking News – NYT Supports Big Government, Big Labor.

By April 23, 2012Labor Unions

I hope you’re sitting down while you’re reading this because I’ve got some shocking news. The New York Times ran an editorial today supporting the big government agenda being executed by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The NAM is listed as the lead boogeyman opposing the Board’s overreach in the posting requirement rule.

Unsurprisingly the Times completely misses the point about the NAM’s lawsuit against the Board. They minimize the harmful precedent the posting requirement sets, and much like the NLRB, the Times does it’s best to ignore Congressional intent and decades of existing labor law. As Jay Timmons, the NAM’s President and CEO, has noted, the posting rule represents “an unprecedented attempt by the Board to assert power and authority it does not possess.”

In reality, objective observers understand that this lawsuit is fundamentally about putting an end to the NLRB’s radical agenda that threatens long-term harm to workplace relations and the NAM is proud to lead the charge against it. When you disagree with New York Times about labor policy, you must be doing something right.
