Washington, D.C. (August 30, 2011) – The Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) today released the following statement in response to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issuing decisions on cases such as Lamons Gasket and Specialty Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center of Mobile:
“President Obama has stated creating jobs is his most ‘urgent mission.’ Judging by the actions of his administration, his rhetoric is completely untrue,” said Fred Wszolek, spokesperson for the Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI). “Today, the National Labor Relations Board continued its attacks against employees and employers with more rules that will kill jobs and force business closures. With unemployment near double digits and deep uncertainty in the marketplace, President Obama’s labor board couldn’t care less about workers as it seeks to reward union bosses. It is safe to say the agenda pursued by President Obama and his regulatory agencies represent some of the most significant impediments to economic recovery and Congress must stop them before they destroy the livelihoods of more Americans.”
*NOTE: WFI will be reviewing each decision in greater detail and provide additional feedback in the near future.*
