Well, I think he can relax. Pretty sure, actually.
Obama's proposals are 180 degrees wrong. Obama wants to drive up labor costs, not because it makes economic sense, but because it is the only way he can possibly be reelected.
Just a few short weeks ago, the Washington metropolitan area was preparing for Hurricane Irene and the strong winds and rainfall accompanying the storm. Most parents and homeowners were running around town picking up batteries, buying flashlights and purchasing water in the event there were significant disruptions in power.
In the last session of Congress, members of both the Senate and House spoke loudly and clearly through their actions on various pieces of legislation, including the Employee ‘Forced’ Choice Act (EFCA). EFCA would have eliminated the secret ballot in union organizing elections and given to government arbitrators the authority to determine wages and other terms and conditions of employment.
After the defeat of card check at the legislative ballot box, the former SEIU goon is acting creatively in order to implement portions of card check unilaterally. What would one expect from a guy appointed to his position despite his nomination being rejected by the Senate?
More than two years ago, the nation was told by then Illinois Senator and now President Barack Obama, that there would be a new era of openness and transparency in government consistent with promises he made to change the way business was done in Washington, D.C.
As more Americans become familiar with the NLRB, the regulatory agency stocked with President Obama's appointees continues to deliberate over job-killing policies that reward Big Labor bosses and hurt workers.
It seems like every few days we see another example of workers giving unions the cold shoulder.
Yesterday, Big Labor bosses decided to use the anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a means to promote collective bargaining.
The National Mediation Board (NMB) has become Big Labor’s latest tool for regulating and forcing workers into unions. Like most administrative agencies, the NMB has little accountability and American voters have little influence on their decisions as they often operate in the background and answer to no one.
The central question in Obama's bid for a second term is: Will the issues that doomed his party in 2010 still be the key questions in 2012?
In a democracy, the will of the voter is the ultimate mandate. Those elected to public office are the servants to the electorate, and by extension, this is true for the bureaucrats appointed and nominated by those same officials.
The pas de deux between the Republican Congress and the Democratic president and Senate can get old pretty quickly.
With the White House doling out appointments, regulatory favors and other paybacks, Big Labor must be counting its blessings to have an administration in place willing to ignore the will of citizens and job creators.
We were reminded this week why elections matter. Despite sending a message to both the executive and legislative branches a month ago in the midterm elections, voters are still feeling the consequences of the actions of government.
Does President Obama plan to move to the center in response to his overwhelming rejection at the polls on Nov. 2? No way!
The resounding message from this election was that the small business community matters and voters will not tolerate an agenda that threatens its viability or existence.
The unions may have a fallback position: Forget about the secret ballot, and try to pass a bill with mandatory federal arbitration. This might be easier to defend. Every American knows what the secret ballot is; few Americans know what mandatory arbitration means.
Using words like “bipartisanship” and “compromise” President Obama may attempt a clever move to get controversial legislation passed to increase Big Labor’s control over the U.S. workforce.
