Defunding the NLRB???

Lately it seems like there is a full-on attack against labor. Here in Wisconsin the governor is attempting to substantially limit public-sector unions' ability to represent government workers and limit those workers' ability to object generally to work conditions. Then today Rep. Price (R-Ga.) offered an amendment to the continuing resolution bill that would completely defund the National Labor Relations Board ("NLRB"). The language states:
None of the funds made available by this Act may be used to pay the salaries and expenses of personnel to carry out and implement the National Labor Relations Act (29 U.S.C. 151 et seq.).

Scary times indeed!
UPDATE: The amendment failed! Woo hoo!
