Send the National Labor Relations Board back to the salt mine.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to objectively verify the opinion made by the author about the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

Unfortunately, it is not possible to objectively verify the opinion made by the author about the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).Ben Domenech, the publisher of The Federalist tweeted mentioning staffs of left-leaning publications who sought to unionize that he will send them back to the salt mine. Fleming, a Bernie-supporting class action lawyer in Massachusetts filed a complaint with the NLRB, accusing Domenech of violating Section 8(a)(1) of the Wagner Act, 29 U.S.C. § 158(a)(1). The Federalist has a total of six employees (counting Domenech), and two of them submitted affidavits saying they read this as a joke on current events. The NLRB did not call any witnesses or introduce any evidence that anybody in the organization thought this was anything but a snarky tweet. NLRB administrative law judge, Kenneth Chu, concluded that Domenech had violated the Wagner Act. The author opinionated that the judgement by NLRB has proven itself here to be both humorlessly literal-minded and easily abused.
