Calling all of those of you who support President Obama!
It's regulations like the one below that cause businesses to not hire. And you to lose your job. Even in non-Union states. And with NC's unemployment rate holding around 10.4%, this just adds to the misery and fear for the employers, the job makers, the investors, etc.
As for unions, hasn't the US been hurt enough? Has your job been eliminated? You might want to take a good, long, hard look at the administration you support. Do you ever wonder how they can block Boeing from building a plant in South Carolina and then claim they are trying to create jobs? On another note, but in the same interview about the new NLRB law, the CEO of Applebees just told Foxnews if healthcare was repealed he would hire more people.
New Rules Seen as Aid to Efforts to Unionize

"The National Labor Relations Board issued new regulations on Thursday that require companies to put posters on their bulletin boards that inform employees about their rights to unionize under federal law.
Under the new regulations, businesses would have to display notices that explain the right to bargain collectively, to give out union literature and to work together to improve wages and conditions free of retaliation.
Noting that many workers are unaware of these rights, the board said the new regulations are aimed at making it easier for workers to exercise their rights under the National Labor Relations Act, which sets rules for unionization efforts. Agricultural, rail and airline employers would not be covered by the new rule.
Business groups were quick to criticize the new regulations, which they said were part of the board’s pro-union tilt under President Obama.
The board’s chairwoman, Wilma B. Liebman, steps down on Saturday, when her term expires. The new regulations are part of a push by the board’s 3-to-1 Democratic majority to finish cases and rules before she leaves.
“This is one more initiative among those we expect to be coming out over the next month that are essentially gifts to organized labor,” said Randel K. Johnson, senior vice president for labor policy at the United States Chamber of Commerce.
Noting that this was the first time the N.L.R.B. has required posting of such a notice since the labor relations act was passed in 1935, he questioned whether the labor board had the statutory authority to require such notices.
Business groups also expect the board to issue a decision shortly that would make it easier to unionize specific groups of nursing home workers, like certified nursing assistants.
The labor board has come under heavy attack from Republicans and the business community in recent months. In particular, the board’s acting general counsel, Lafe E. Solomon, has drawn fire for filing a case against Boeing that accuses the company of illegally retaliating against unionized workers in Washington State by deciding to build a new $750 million aircraft assembly plant in South Carolina...."
