    Re: Tennessee Volkswagen plant votes against union in UAW defeat

    The Tennessee legislature threatened the workers with no expansion money from them if they formed a Union.
    The Senator, who may get his own ethics investigation over this,
    said the night before the election that VW would get a new line of vehicles if the Union was turned down .

    This is part of the cycle of things. People forget how hard it was to win what workers now enjoy and take for granted. Unions will continue to lose. Wages will remain stagnant or go down. The middle class loses ground compared to the wealthy. And the repression will someday become evident as the Gilded Age returns in all its horror. The violence of 1876 will repeat itself albeit in different manifestations. And then the unions will begin to rise again.

    It is part of the cycle.

    That's so unethical.

    I have a problem with Trumka making that much for just representing the Union.
    This is one area of Unions where we disagree, and I'm on the conservative side.

    Pension systems with these salaries are unsustainable.
    Your post directly supports why Detroit went down, and why Detroit was used against UAW in Tennessee .

    You do believe in the First Amendment, right? Anybody can express their opinion for any reason whatsoever, don't you agree?

    They used their money and power to instill fear with lies. There's nothing right about it.

    Isn't that income inequality?
