With all of the demagoguery about the Democrat Party’s chief leader being so pro business, I would like to present to you one employment law case that so perfectly illustrates why businesses manufacture elsewhere. This is just one example. There are many.
In EEOC v. La Rana Hawaii, LLC, a female bartender sued for sex discrimination. The government forces employers into a sort of mediation process called “conciliation.” Understand, no one comes of these “conciliated.” This is government extortion. This is part of why MJM calls the EEOC the Employer Extortion Opportunity Commission.
The EEOC demanded the employer “conciliate” by agreeing to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars. When the employer asked for the details of the investigation the EEOC had supposedly done, the EEOC refused and sued. The judge ordered them back to conciliation and to disclose the investigation results.
Put another way: the judge held the government in bad faith because of the EEOC’s conduct during this “conciliation.” Your government. Bad faith. Trying to beat up an employer. They are the government, and you are not.
This administration—and prior administrations—have all made America an increasingly hostile place for employers to do business. Some employers—like bars—have to stay here because their customers are here. Some have to stay because of the supply chain. Others can manufacture somewhere else, and they do. Why? Because their own country abuses them and treats them like undesirables. Some don’t have to take it, and they leave. With the jobs they could have offered.
The president’s insistence on being the friend of the free market, and the helper of small business, is not true.
