Rich Corp Execs Shut Down the NLRB: Then and Now
Posted On: Jul 19, 2013

July 19, 2013 | WORKERS' RIGHTS | Believe it or not, shutting down the NLRB was also big news from 1935-1937, when the American Liberty League (ALL), a collection of prominent corporate executives plus their wealthy allies, put their money where their mouths were to shut the NLRB down. [These days,] for the right-wing, maximum obstructionism to the enforcement of laws that protect employees is the answer to its prayers. Today's labor news, complete with manufactured outrage and attacks on a government agency that protects workers — and our economy and democracy — are just part of a long tradition of giving power to the rick and taking away legal rights of the poor. Learn more in the 9th article in the Judicial Amendment Project series of the National Labor Relations Act at Truth-Out.org.
