If this isn’t a perfect example of an out of touch government agency, what is? From the kind folks at The Washington Free Beacon, we get the heartwarming story of the government agency that made a company post government notices in a factory they closed weeks earlier for employees that are no longer there to see them.
That is your government at work, America.
What is this all about? Only President Obama’s National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) proving once again that they are a useless body of fools and knaves costing this nation millions for no reason.
As the WFB informs us,
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) on Monday blasted defunct Twinkie manufacturer Hostess Brands, Inc., for “unreasonably delaying providing the [Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International] Union with other requested information” and ordered the company to post signs admitting its bad-faith bargaining in its Biddeford, Maine offices.
Who cares if these posters are posted? After all, Hostess Brands closed all its bakeries and other facilities weeks ago. They’ve folded up shop, Mr. Obama. Who cares if they’ve posted government notices to empty factories for employees who have long since lost their jobs and won’t ever see them?
Ah, but Obama wants to take Hostess to court for not posting the signs in the empty factories anyway.
That’s a fine use of government time and money, isn’t it?
Hostess won’t bother fighting any lawsuit, of course. They’ve told these government thugs that they’ll be happy to post the silly signs in the empty factory.
I mean, why not? As absurd as it is to post signs in a closed factory so that employees that will never return can “see” them it is even more absurd to be dragged into court by an out of control government and have to waste money and time in the process by refusing to post the signs.
Yep. Your government at work.
