Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02), a member of the Education and the Workforce Committee, released the following statement after today’s Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions hearing focused on “Corporate Campaigns and the NLRB: The Impact of Union Pressure on Job Creation.”

Wilson stated, “From the moment the 112th Congress was sworn in, one of the main focuses of House Republicans has been to address job creation and job growth. Businesses have a right to contract where to work in the best interest of their shareholders and workers. Unions have no right to bully job creators.    

“Boeing has selected Charleston, my birthplace, because of its pro-business leadership, well-trained workforce, and right-to-work laws. The NLRB’s unprecedented attack on American jobs is a threat to all right-to-work states, not just South Carolina.”
