GOP prioritizing attacks on NLRB at the expense of jobs

Americans are sending a clear message to legislators: It’s time to work for the 99 percent again, not corporate interests. But right-wing politicians in Congress aren’t listening.

Attacks on the NLRB SummarizedInstead, they’re wasting time and taxpayer dollars with an unrelenting series of attacks on the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA)—the only means workers have to protect themselves when their rights are violated on the job.

We took a closer look at their attempts to strip away protections for everyday Americans and found that, in 2011 alone, anti-worker legislators have launched nearly 50 attacks on the agency and the NLRA itself. They’ve introduced 24 bills and amendments; approved one continuing resolution; held eight hearings; and tied up the agency with eight threatening letters, four official requests for documents, and one subpoena—none of which created a single job. So it’s clear that their ultimate aim is to eliminate the rights and protections that ensure the 99 percent a fair shake in the workplace.
