Acting NLRB General Counsel: ‘We screwed up the U.S. economy,’ ALG responds

Nov. 10, 2011, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson reacted to the release of e-mails by Judicial Watch from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) discussing its controversial decision to attempt to stop Boeing Corporation from building a production facility in South Carolina. The e-mails were released due to a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch.

“Acting NLRB General Counsel Lafe Solomon’s whining that he hasn’t received enough credit for his attacks on South Carolina workers reveals the shallowest of evil. Solomon clearly relishes destroying worker opportunities if it gets him notice in the media. It is unconscionable that someone who has been so instrumental in ‘screwing up the U.S. economy’ still has a job at all.

“Chairman John Kline should haul Solomon before his Education and Workforce committee to inquire as to why he thinks it’s so funny that Americans are losing their jobs. Government officials should not be making light of the fact that their decisions are wrecking the economy.”
