Last month the left wing totalitarian movement won a law suit to force a company to do business where the progressives wanted them to do business. I am speaking about the law suit against Boeing.
Boeing is Americans greatest manufacture of aircraft. As of 2010 they employed over 160,000 Americans. Boeing decided that they needed to create a stable manufacturing facility for produce their newest aircraft, the 787 dream liner, and found a location in South Carolina. They then constructed a $750 million plant in which to produce these aircraft.
They made one mistake that put them on the radar of the left wing totalitarians; South Carolina is a right to work state. This means that labor unions can not force people to join them in order to participate in their chosen field of employment. The progressives then came out to say that the 3,800 jobs this plant would create should be in a unionized state like Washington.
So now the people of South Carolina may loose the opportunity to employee 3,800 of their unemployed, in well paying positions, because progressives are strong arming the government to force Boeing to do what the progressives want them to do.
If Boeing is able to get justice from our legal system and they open their South Carolina plant, they will be able to create 3,800 jobs and increase production of the 787 Dream liner. Both of these benefits will create wealth in America. If the progressives get their way, Boeing will be forced to build these aircraft in Washington state by workers that have no choice but to be in a union and Boeing has to worry about work stoppage every time the union is not happy about something.
Why are progressives against free choice? Why would they rather see America loose it’s place as one of the worlds leaders in aircraft manufacturing?
If the progressive left gets their way, unions will tell you where you can work and when you can work. Totalitarian rule at its best.
Wikipedia: “Totalitarianism (or totalitarian rule) is a political system where the state, usually under the power of a single political person, faction, or class, recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible.”
