NLRB chairman steps down

Robert Battista, the chairman of the National Labor Relations Board who spent his entire tenure destroying worker's rights, has resigned his post to pursue a lucrative career in the private sector, doing the exact same thing.

This is the chairman who infamously tried to give employers the right to fire employees for complaining about unfair labor practices - a decision that was eventually forcibly overturned by the courts.

The upside is that the new NLRB chairman, a presidential appointee, is unlikely to be worse than Battista, and will probably be much better.

The era of big business running amok is winding down, and after eight brutal years of federally-backed assault, working families in America finally have something to look forward to.
