Former National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) Chairman Peter Schaumber appeared on “The Kudlow Report” this week to discuss the Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act with former SEIU President Andy Stern.
Schaumber supports the bill, introduced recently by Rep. Tim Scott and Rep. Trey Gowdy. He argued the bill is essential to U.S. business continuing to operate free from overregulation and government interference, noting the now infamous situation regarding the NLRB’s unprecedented complaint against the Boeing Company.
He goes on to argue that by coming out in opposition to the Scott/Gowdy bill when he had earlier refused to comment on the Boeing situation, President Obama is making it clear that he is a “union partisan,” and that clearly Big Labor is attempting to use its political influence at the expense of workers in South Carolina.
Predictably, Andy Stern dodged questions about the bill repeatedly, attempting to argue that the NLRB decision on Boeing had not yet been made. It is clear, however, that the writing is on the wall—without this bill, the president’s out of control labor board will seek to undercut American businesses and bail out Big Labor at every opportunity.
