    No your wrong, name one state that has given additional tax breaks after the factory has been built. While the workers already make more money then most UAW workers.

    VW is the one with all the power in this not the state. UAW reputation is what killed this. They can still vote on other unions and VW is looking into that.

    Barry should focus on fundamentally transforming unions into something close to their stated objective, away from just being political machines for Democrats.

    The UAW gives a whole new meaning to the term “fossil fueled.”

    A number of “foreign” car companies have located in the American south because they can come in, offer good salaries and benefits comparable to the region, and thus match what the unions might get. There IS a difference when companies do care about employees. Unions are most effective when corporations (hmm, like Boeing currently) are looking for ways to avoid providing valid salaries and benefits to their long-standing employees working where COL is much higher than in the south.

    Not surprisingly, the news today is that VW management in Germany is using the fact that the Republicans meddled in their private business (they WANTED the union, remember) to question whether they’ll ever open a factory in the South again.

    And neither are you, the man gave his opinion. Do you expect a Governor of a state not to comment at all. Yes there is influence there but not scare attics.

    Also in your post you also forgot to show:
    “A business-backed group put up a billboard declaring, “Auto Unions Ate Detroit. Next Meal: Chattanooga,” while a prominent anti-union group, the National Right to Work Committee, has brought legal challenges against the U.A.W.’s effort, asserting that VW officials improperly pressured workers to back a union”. From the same NY Times article you posted.

    As for helping blue states I don’t know where you get that, U.A.W will send money to the Democrats no matter what their members say.

    Ok so you are entitled to your own facts, do you know how that makes you sound and you want to be taken seriously.

    Sorry the part about the blue states I did get wrong but a comment really you think that is interfering. So only the left gets to decide what is right is wrong and get to choose there own facts. Sorry but this must be where the same information and be interpreted differently.
