    I don't, but that does apply to Detroit.

    As of 2012.

    The government employees unions are fighting it in court.

    There are other reasons major companies would avoid Michigan such as taxes and regulations.

    FDR was speaking about public sector unions, and in his post MrVic was also talking about public sector unions....Where is the "misinformation"??? Or didn't you read it?

    No, not Detroit. Most urban areas have been largely controlled by the Democratic Party.

    Explain why VW didn't want to open up in DETROIT? There certainly is plenty of factory space and unemployed people needing jobs.

    Explain why basically NO AUTO COMPANY does ANYTHING in DETROIT anymore if it is so successful for a company to have the UAW.

    To understand the long term effects of the UAW all a person has to do it visit DETROIT.

    OK, now it's your turn to blame everyone but the union for the collapse of the auto industry in DETROIT.

    UAW and Democrat controlled Detroit, Michigan to be specific.

    If by DETROIT - you mean the DETROIT AREA - there is a huge and thriving automobile industry presence here. And they are doing quite well.
