Boeing SC has possibly fired workers for their support of unions, and the case will be heard soon in court.

"A regional director for the National Labor Relations Board has ruled there is merit to claims Boeing Co. illegally fired five workers who support the International Association of Machinists union at the aerospace giant’s 787 Dreamliner campus in North Charleston.

"The ruling gives the IAM a preliminary win in its ongoing battle with Boeing over establishing a union presence in South Carolina — a right-to-work state with the nation’s lowest percentage of union workers.

"The charges will now be heard by an administrative law judge."

Refugee resettlement cuts can affect various people and agencies in the Midlands.

“'Our agency in Columbia was averaging about 200 people a year being resettled,' Gunnels [of Lutheran Services] tells Free Times. 'Trump’s first year in office we saw that decline pretty rapidly. Last fiscal year, we only resettled about 100 people. This fiscal year we are slated to resettle 71 people. So, you can see that it’s consistently gone down each year he’s been in office.'

"Gunnels says a large portion of refugees that Lutheran Services helps in Columbia are from Burma and the Congo, though through the years he’s helped resettle folks from Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Nepal and elsewhere."

Economic growth will slow in South Carolina in 2020, according to UofSC economics professor Joey Von Nessen.

"The reasons behind the slowdown, Von Nessen said, are the result of the waning stimulus from the federal tax cuts that took effect at the end of 2017 and more uncertainty about the economy because of the trade war.

"In addition, global markets have slowed, including two of South Carolina’s biggest trading partners — China and Germany."
