The NLRB's Union Bonus : With the election over, the labor board guts the Beck decision on dues.

The Wall Street Journal reports:
Christmas came early for Big Labor last week when the National Labor Relations Board handed down a pair of decisions that overturned longstanding precedent and will deliver a windfall to union finances.
There's more:
Last week, the same 3-1 panel also struck down 50 years of precedent in a case that will force companies to subsidize unions that go on strike against them. While workers march the picket line, businesses will be required to withhold their dues and pass them along to union leaders.
The Obama regime sure likes extortion. Attention Republican members of Congress: why fund the NLRB????
