After a few weeks of recess, Members of Congress will return this week to address a number of issues, including the budget, transportation bill and Buffet Rule. One of the issues that will likely come to a vote in the U.S. Senate in the coming weeks is a joint resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act, which seeks to reverse a recent regulation promulgated by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
In an era when Americans simply want the government to leave them alone and focus on getting the economy going so businesses can create jobs, the message seems completely lost on Big Labor’s agents at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
Toward the end of last year, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) finalized a rule for “quickie” or “ambush” elections. The final rule significantly diminishes the amount of time for workplace elections and threatens the unionization of workplaces without labor having secured the employees’ un-coerced majority support.
Barack Obama's latest unconstitutional action is his attempt to make four so-called recess appointments to high-level, well-paying jobs in the federal bureaucracy when the Senate was not in recess.
In 2008, Barack Obama was swept into the White House in large part due to public opposition to President Bush’s heavy-handed use of executive power and accusations that he had circumvented Congress - a constant criticism employed by candidate Obama on the stump.
Well, the Obama Administration just topped that by essentially declaring the U.S. Constitution "inoperative."
President sacrifices jobs for payback.
Americans agree – our federal government is not doing right by us. The Executive Branch seems out of control.
While President Obama is taking a break in Hawaii, the conversation in Washington, D.C. has not stopped regarding his National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
‘Tis the season for every media outlet, blog, or writer to put out a “Top List” of the year. Instead of the usual top hits or highlights of the year, it’s worth remembering why this was one of the roughest years for small business owners at the hands of our own government. Herein our own list of the Grinches that tried to replace holiday cheer with a goody bag of ill-considered, overly onerous rules and regulations and other assorted job killers this year.
Last week, the U.S. House passed the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act, legislation which reins in the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). With a 235-188 bipartisan vote, the message was sent to President Obama that his unelected bureaucrats are not doing the bidding of Big Labor bosses without Congress stepping in and acting.
Many of us spent this weekend with families and focused on the thanks in our hearts for our blessings, but once again Obama’s job-killing National Labor Relations Board is giving us plenty to remain un-thankful about.
The Associated Press recently described legislation aimed at reversing certain decisions of the National Labor Relations Board as merely a Republican response to “union-friendly” decisions of the Obama Board (Sam Hananel, “Labor Board Headed For Gridlock Again,” Associated Press, 10/28/11).
Sometimes extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures. And that is true regarding the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and its job-killing assault against workers and small businesses across the country.
It turns out that Obama’s American Jobs act contains another hidden provision, one that would allow unsuccessful job applicants to sue if they think a company denied them a job because they were unemployed.
For some time, we have been saying that Americans are concerned with the overly burdensome and stifling regulations coming from unelected bureaucrats in government agencies more concerned with rewarding special interests than facilitating job creation. This week, two separate polls revealed that voters believe government is getting in the way of business and that there is wide-spread opposition to the actions of the Obama Administration’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
