What is the NLRB and What is it Doing to Business?

By the Price of Business, Radio Partner of US Daily Review.

Kevin Price, Host of the Price of Business and Publisher/Editor in Chief of US Daily Review, recently interviewed James Sherk, Senior Policy Analyst in Labor Economics for the Heritage Foundation on the troubling situation with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The NLRB is a government agency charged with protecting employees from coercion from either unions or employers. Under the Obama Administration, the agency has taken a very different role. Sherk discusses that and what employers need to be aware of.

As Heritage’s Senior Policy Analyst in Labor Economics, James Sherk researches ways to promote competition and mobility in the workforce instead of erecting barriers preventing workers from getting ahead.

Sherk joined Heritage in 2006.  His recent writings address why joblessness rose in the recession, the economic consequences of extending unemployment benefits and the wrongheadedness of legislation to do away with the secret ballot in union elections (“card check”).

His commentary and analysis has appeared in such publications as the Washington PostNew York Post,Business Week and Roll Call. He has been a guest expert on such networks as CNN, CNBC and Fox News.

Sherk completed graduate studies at the University of Rochester, where he received a master of arts in economics with a concentration in econometrics and labor economics. He earned a bachelor’s degree in economics and mathematics at Hillsdale College in Hillsdale, Mich.

The following is that interview in its entirety. It has two parts, in the second part Price and Sherk discuss other labor law issues: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/18839603/highlight/221686.
