Boeing Still Facing Squeeze from White House
Rand Paul wants to know why the Obama administration is trying to stop Boeing from opening it's fancy new plant in "Right to Work" South Carolina.
Chief Executive Jim McNerney said in an opinion piece published in the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday that the National Labor Relations Board was "wrong and has far overreached its authority."
Boeing has said it will fight the complaint, which seeks an order requiring Boeing to operate the second 787 line in Washington state, where union workers build the company's commercial planes.
Boeing opened a second, nonunion production line for its 787 Dreamliner in South Carolina after an aggressive campaign by workers in Washington's Puget Sound area to keep the project there.
The idea of an American company being told it can't open a factory in one of the fifty states represents a new, and bizarre level, of big government.
