The word is out on the National Labor Relations Board: despite the historic ruling by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals finding President Obama’s NLRB recess appointments unconstitutional, the Board doesn’t seem to care.
But, that’s not a good way to conduct taxpayer business if your decisions have major consequences for American businesses and the workers they employ. In fact, so worrisome is the NLRB’s decision – along with the Obama Administration’s – to dismiss the court’s ruling and its path to the Supreme Court that business leaders are rightfully concerned.
“While the NLRB shrugs its shoulders and says, ‘So what?’ the business community is asking, ‘Now what?’ posed U.S. Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Thomas Donahue in a recent Politico op-ed “The administration knew full well that these controversial appointments would be challenged. Now, it must take some sensible steps to avoid adding to uncertainty and wasting time and money.”
What this basically means is that Obama’s rogue labor board is putting our economy and American workers at serious risk by not considering the ramifications of this ruling. No violation of the Constitution should be taken lightly.
