The National Labor Relations Board has announced a new rule that will limit opportunities for franchises and contracts.
New Rule Of National Labor Relations Board
The National Labor Relations Board under the Biden administration is implementing new labor rules that are making it harder for small businesses to thrive. The National Labor Relations Board has announced a new joint employer rule that reduces franchising and contracting opportunities.
This new rule from the National Labor Relations Board means that franchisees and contractors will now be considered joint employers with their corporate parents, increasing liability concerns for corporations. As a result of such a rule by the National Labor Relations Board, corporations will likely reduce franchising and contracting opportunities, negatively impacting existing franchisees and contractors who have worked hard to build their businesses.
This new rule of the National Labor Relations Board will disproportionately affect minority-owned businesses, which often operate in minority-owned neighborhoods and provide job opportunities for minorities. In addition, the National Labor Relations Board is also finalizing a rule that could ban certain forms of freelancing and independent contracting, further limiting entrepreneurship and small businesses.
According to a published article by the Washington Examiner, the Biden administration supports these changes by the National Labor Relations Board as a way to repay prominent plaintiff lawyer and labor union donors who contribute to Biden’s reelection campaign.
These rules by the National Labor Relations Board make it easier for unions to organize corporations and boost the power of big labor, ultimately benefiting Democrats.
Plans For The Middle East
In a published article by Reuters, the Biden administration’s plans for the Middle East, which included brokering peace between Israel and Saudi Arabia and addressing Iran’s nuclear ambitions, have been disrupted by the recent violence between Israeli forces and Palestinian Hamas militants.
President Biden, who had previously kept his distance from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, now faces a crisis that could reshape his Middle East policy and aligns him with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
