Perhaps its because the union extremists at the National Labor Relations Board have 40% less work than their predecessors in 2001, yet have nearly $67 million more in their budget that they now have money to blow on an August conference in Washington, D.C Or, perhaps its because they seem immune from Congressional oversight.
Regardless the reason, in August, the National Labor Relations Board is apparently holding a week-long New Employee Conference from August 22, through the 26 in Washington, D.C.
In addition to the airfare, the per diem of $71 per day on full days and $53.25 on the partial/travel days, the NLRB has also booked its conference attendees into the Four Seasons.
Granted, the Four Seasons is discounting (to $157) its $595 to $795 per night rate for the NLRB employees, one wonders (in this age of skyrocketing deficits and alleged austerity) why the NLRB needs to fly its new employees in from all over the nation, house them at a posh DC hotel, and give them money for food is a mysteryespecially when there are so many alternative means of conducting training remotely.
The NRLB needs to be sacrificed. I’m all for sharing that.
Why aren’t they driving there in Volts?
It’s wagyu beef time in DC!
Let the good times roll!
Is anyone aware if a website exists that follows all of these tax-payer funded junkets?
Obama must be planning to attend.
But we can't cut the Federal budge anywhere without starving innocent minority women and children and their little dogs, too.
Time for some Alinsky style mob action. Carry the battle to our enemies, get in their faces, hit back twice as hard.
Can I joined the party? I live in traveling distance.
I think everyone should call and ask. All 300 million of us. lol
