    Just do what your Republican politicians tell you, and all will be fine. They wouldn’t lie, would they?

    It might be important to note that VW and other “foreign” owners have done much better by their employees in the U.S. with regionally comparative salaries, and good benefits, than “U.S.” companies (who ship our jobs overseas, or just north and south). We need open shop law, not “right to work” or closed shops, but we REALLY need corporate leaders less focused on their personal benefits, and more focused on reasonable profits, earned without screwing the workers.

    If it wasn’t for labor unions, non-union wages would be stuck@ $5 per hour, no sick leave, no pension, etc. Just pay the freight.

    Some unions are good some aren’t. They are not all the same nor or the locals. Stop lumping everything together. Same with liberals and conservatives.

    @CCNJ's say the sky is falling

    The part where Republican politicians intimidated workers into voting “no” by threatening that their jobs would be taken away.

    Great art today. Unbelievably stupid message. The idea that the workers screwed themselves by rejecting the thoroughly discredited UAW is pathetically laughable.

    Unions are more necessary now than ever. They are the only defense against the powerful wealth of the 1%. Strength in numbers!

    There were zero threats. You have zero proof of your accusations.
    .
    Oh? Then you’ve researched this? Google “Tennessee VW Politics”. Interesting to note that sites with right wing bias assert opinions, while neutral sites give factual evidence of Republican intimidation.

    A day ago, Republican SC governor Nikki Haley said that businesses with union shops are not welcome in her state, including automakers Ford, GM and Chrysler.
    .
    But, y’know, for Republicans it’s “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs” (unless it gets in the way of the Party line).
    .
    Hey conservative shills, unions (whether you like them or not) are the only things standing between you and an oligarchy takeover of American politics.
    .
    Republican governance echoes their Business masters, who will work you at minimal wage until your job skills become obsolete and your health deteriorates, at which time they will kick you to the curb by “downsizing” you. If you don’t have a family with means, or you were unable to save, you will have a short life.

    I am not a lib. Well, not an extreme one anyway. And I state that IF (and unfortunately that is sometimes a very big if) a company (corporation or otherwise) offers its employees good wages and benefits, and treats those employees with respect and even kindness. Then there is absolutely no reason that those employees would even need or want a union. That is neither a liberal nor conservative stand, it is a pro American Employee sensible stand!!


    I have no doubt that companies that are willing to do this (whether head quartered in America or elsewhere) will find American workers that are the best in the world, hard working, and even faithful to the companies products and profits. Now, are there such companies in existence? Evidently VW just might be one of them.

    Behind Closed Doors… Designed to leak out… the reason why it was widely reported… Can you follow the direction this is going?

    Right, Obama unfairly interfered in the process, by asking your guys not to interfere in the process. For shame, shame, shame.
