When the Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA) passed, Congress defined the term “Employer” very broadly as “any employer or any group or association of employers engaged in an industry affecting commerce … an employer within the meaning of any law of the United States relating to the employment of any employees.”

In my dictionary ‘politicians’ is defined as “treasonous scumbags who would steal a piece of toast from an Alzheimer’s patient to give to their dog and call it ‘leveling the playing field.’”

More pandering to the union vote. Period.
It is all the fraud cares about.

So, by what authority does she get to “redefine” explicit statutory language written into the Act?

Anyone in Congress going to do anything about this usurpation? (Nevermind; I jest.)

The first two years of the next administration could be devoted to simply scrubbing the regulatory abuse of the current administration.

In the meantime, it would sure be a good idea for the GOP House committees to tie these people up in their own underwear.

I guess if it’s ok for the unions, that makes it ok for the other employers too.
