Big Labor Giveaway: The Federal Government Is Trying to Destroy Franchise Businesses

In August 2015, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), in a departure from decades of precedent, unilaterally redefined what it means to be an employer. In the administrative decision, Browning-Ferris v NLRB, the unelected NLRB decreed that some employers were responsible for the employees of others. This action threatens to destroy the franchise model of business, harming job creation and putting 40,000 small businesses at risk. The difficulties for small business created by this decision are highlighted today in a Senate Small Business Committee hearing.

The NLRB's Labor Ruling Is Another Blow against Job Growth

The National Labor Relations Board has issued a decision that could have severe implications for many types of businesses across the United States. Essentially the ruling states that companies are responsible for labor practices between contractors and subcontractors. The higher-level companies will be considered “joint employers” with their independent contractors.

Obama's Recess Appointment Smackdown

Last year, during a recess while Congress was still in session, President Obama appointed three members to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). While it is Constitutional for a President to make recess appointments during a inter-cession recess, these appointments were made during a intra-session recess. It may sound like a minor detail, but it's not. These appointments to the NRLB, which enforce employee and employer rights, don’t fall under that category. Whoops.

A Successful Business; is it still legal?

Is it now criminal to operate a successful business?In the looter-world of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, it is. The modern United States has yet to declare making a profit and creating jobs illegal.

Obama's middle finger has a name: Craig Becker

On Saturday, among Barack Obama’s 15 “recess appointees” was SEIU attorney Craig Becker to a seat on the National Labor Relations Board. From that spot, Becker is likely to try to institute “Card Check” (or worse) through administrative fiat since it appears unable to pass Congress. Becker is as radical as anybody in (or formerly in) the Obama Administration. He’s as radical as the overtly socialist Carol Browner and the overtly communist Van Jones.
