“Yep, I’m moving on,”  National Labor Relations Board media director Nancy Cleeland told the Examiner via email this afternoon.

She added: “I’m going to work on a project looking at the underground/non-tax/cash economy, doing some research and communications work. A little closer to my reporting roots. This is my last week.”

The project in question will be for the United Brotherhood of Carpenters, she said. “(T)his is a very big issue for them. Their contractors can’t compete with guys who are getting a 30% discount by not paying taxes and workers comp.”

I was tipped off to the move by a source who noted her job is currently being advertised on the USAJobs.gov website. That is the federal government’s official bulletin board for available jobs.
