Obama Wants Students Prepared To 
Compete For Manufacturing Jobs “Across The Nation,” 
Except For Where His Administration Is Stifling Those Jobs

“Obama Will Take A Quick Trip To Alexandria, Va., To ‘Highlight The Importance Of Training And Preparing Our Workforce To Compete For Manufacturing Jobs Across The Nation,’ The White House Announced.” (David Jackson, “Obama To Promote Economic Policies On Wednesday,” USA Today6/6/11)

OBAMA’S NLRB IS PREPARED TO LAUNCH “AN UNPRECEDENTED INTRUSION INTO BOARDROOMS” AT THE EXPENSE OF JOBS AND FREE ENTERPRISE

The NLRB “Wants To Force Far More Companies To Consult Unions When They Want To Relocate.”  “NLRB Chairwoman Wilma Liebman, a long-time union lawyer, doesn't like that balance. ‘The Board's task would be easier, and more importantly, the [National Labor Relations] Act's policy of promoting collective bargaining might well be better served, if employers were required to provide unions with requested information about relocation decisions whenever there was a reasonable likelihood that labor-cost concessions might affect the decision,’ she wrote in her concurrence to the Embarq case. Translation: Ms. Liebman wants to force far more companies to consult unions when they want to relocate, because unions might theoretically be able to offer concessions to avert a move if they had more information.” (Editorial, “Another Labor Board Power Play,” The Wall Street Journal, 5/23/11)

Which “Would Be An Unprecedented Intrusion Into Boardrooms” And Used Against The Companies During Future Labor Negotiations. “Never mind that such a rule change would be an unprecedented intrusion into boardrooms, or that unions might use collective bargaining to request reams of data, such as payrolls and tax returns, to increase their negotiating leverage.” (Editorial, “Another Labor Board Power Play,” The Wall Street Journal, 5/23/11)

“The NLRB Is Controlled By President Obama's Appointees, And The White House Silence On Their Actions Amounts To An Endorsement.” (Editorial, “Another Labor Board Power Play,” The Wall Street Journal, 5/23/11)

The NLRB Is Already Blocking A Boeing Plant And 1,000 Jobs In South Carolina

Obama’s National Labor Relations Board Has Declared That Boeing Opening A New Plant In South Carolina Would Be “Illegal.” “At issue is whether Boeing, which is slated to open a plant this summer in North Charleston and create thousands of jobs, can legally do so. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) contends in a complaint recently filed against Boeing that the company can’t open its plant in ‘right to work’ South Carolina because the move is allegedly motivated by an attempt to avoid strikes and thus intimidate Boeing workers elsewhere.” (Kathleen Parker, Op-Ed, “The NLRB Fires A Shot South Carolina Can’t Ignore,” The Washington Post4/22/11)

  • “[The NLRB] Filed A Complaint Demanding That An Administrative Law Judge Halt The South Carolina Plant (Set To Open In July), And Force Boeing To Move Production To Washington.” (Editorial, “Congress Vs. The NLRB,” The Wall Street Journal,5/4/11)

Boeing Has “Already Poured Billions Into The Facilities And Have Hired 1,000 Workers.” “Boeing, a vital U.S. company, wants to build a plant in South Carolina and bring good-paying manufacturing jobs to the state. They've already poured billions into the facilities and have hired 1,000 workers. But the NLRB filed a lawsuit last month to force Boeing back to Washington state, where workers would be represented by a union.” (Editorial, “Killing Jobs In South Carolina,” The Denver Post, 5/2/11)

Savannah Morning News: The NRLB’s Action Against Boeing Is “A Shocking And Frightening Display Of Washington Interference.” “In a shocking and frightening display of Washington interference, the National Labor Relations Board has taken unprecedented legal action against The Boeing Company to prevent it from expanding production in the Palmetto State. Why? Because the federal board claims that a private company that creates jobs in a right-to-work state like South Carolina is engaging in an ‘unfair labor practice.’”(Editorial, “Boeing Plant: Job Killing In S.C.,” The Savannah Morning News, 5/5/11)

  • Savannah Morning News: The NLRB’s Action “Is An Attack On States That Have Faster Job Growth And Faster Income Growth Than Forced Unionism States.” “The attempt by the NLRB to block Boeing is an attack on states that have faster job growth and faster income growth than forced unionism states. Mr. Obama must live up to his pro-job promise and show that right-to-work states are part of America, too.”(Editorial, “Boeing Plant: Job Killing In S.C.,” The Savannah Morning News, 5/5/11)

IN MAY THE MANUFACTURING SECTOR TOOK A STEEP PLUNGE, SHEDDING JOBS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MONTHS AND INDICATING MORE TROUBLE AHEAD

Manufacturing Indicators Plunged In May As The Sector Ran Out Of Steam. “The ISM’s new-orders index plunged 10.7 percentage points to 51.0%, while the production index sank 9.8 percentage points to 54.0%. Also, the backlog of orders index, which reflects future sales in the pipeline, plunged 10.5 percentage points to 50.5%. The employment index, meanwhile, fell to 58.2% from 62.7% in April, and the inventories gauge declined to 48.7% from 53.6%.”  (Jeffry Bartash, “ISM Manufacturing Guage Tumbles In May,” MarketWatch, 6/1/11)

The ISM Manufacturing Index Has Fallen To Its Lowest Level Since 2002. “The newest report causing concern is the ISM manufacturing index, released Wednesday morning, which showed that manufacturing growth has slowed to its lowest rate since 2009, in part due to rising commodity prices.” (Nathaniel Popper, “Dow Falls 279 Points On Fears About Economy,” Los Angeles Times, 6/1/11)
