You as a small business owner or a soon to be retiree could live real well in South Carolina. As a business owner you know you can’t run a business as well as you’d like to when unions question or block you at every turn. If moving to a right-to-work state (where workers can’t be forced to join a union as a condition of employment) is a possibility for you, what are you waiting for? It may be possible to headquarter your business down there without too much disruption. Companies like Boeing are doing just that. Jon Ostrower at The Wall Street Journal explains:
Boeing Co. warned that it could look to build its planned 777X jetliner outside Washington state, amid signs of union resistance to a proposed contract designed to keep the production work at the aerospace giant’s traditional manufacturing base.
The Boeing statement late Thursday came after members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, which represents more than 33,000 Boeing employees, met with their union leaders in Seattle to discuss a proposed contract from Boeing. That contract, and a package of state government incentives that the legislature is considering, are aimed at getting Boeing to build the 777X at its unionized plants in Washington
