ALG urges Congress to slash NLRB funding to match caseload

Sept. 19, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging Congress to slash the funding of the National Labor Relations Board as part of Americans for Limited Government’s program to identify wasteful federal spending:

“Although union membership and the National Labor Relations Board’s caseload have declined over the past three decades, the NLRB’s budget has grown. Fewer labor complaints are being filed, and fewer unionization elections are being requested. It’s time for Congress to right-size the NLRB and save taxpayers over $100 million a year. With any luck, trimming the payroll will dislodge some ‘Resisters’ from the Administration.”
