Last Friday, the Obama administration welcomed Big Labor back to the White House by signing several executive orders that will make it easier for labor union bosses to organize and hold businesses hostage.

Now that Big Labor has a new best friend at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Americans will see more and more pro-labor union legislation and executive orders enacted. Congress has already passed an economic “stimulus” bill that requires Davis-Bacon wage requirements be applied to all of the infrastructure funds. What’s more, the Democratic Leadership has indicated that passing card check legislation will be priority this year.

Giving labor bosses and unions the ability and right to hold businesses hostage to their costly and unyielding demands will make America less competitive and cause irreparable harm to our economy. These pro-labor policies aren’t the kind of pro-growth solutions that will put people back to work and grow our economy.
