South Carolina pols agree -- Senate should stay out of Boeing union dispute

In these polarizing times, Democrats and Republicans in South Carolina appear to agree about at least one thing: Unionization disputes in their home state are none of the U.S. Senate’s business.

After 23 Senate Democrats sent a letter to Boeing’s CEO this week urging him to stop fighting the unionization of flight-line workers at the aerospace giant’s North Charleston facility, both of the candidates seeking to represent the area in Congress agreed that they should stay out of it — albeit with varying degrees of politeness.

Katie Arrington, the Summerville state lawmaker who defeated U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford in the GOP primary and faces Democrat Joe Cunningham in November, said South Carolina doesn’t need Democrats like Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts “telling us how to run our economy.”

“Politicians don’t create jobs; businesses do,” she said. “Boeing has created thousands of jobs and is responsible for thousands more in the Lowcountry. It is absolutely outrageous that the D.C. Democrats bankrolling Joe Cunningham think they know better than the Lowcountry and Boeing, itself, on how to strengthen our economy and create jobs.”
