Dear EmailNation Subscriber,

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) recently filed a complaint against Boeing for allegedly retaliating against its workers in Washington state for exercising their statutory right to go on strike and collectively bargain. Since then, right-wing pundits and politicians, outraged by the complaint, have attempted to undermine the NLRB's authority. On this week's edition of The Breakdown, labor law expert Catherine Fisk joins DC editor Chris Hayes to counter the persistent misinformation about what the NLRB is legally authorized to do to ensure fairness in the workplace.

All best,
Peter Rothberg, The Nation
