    If management does not complain, why would the GOP do anything so foolish as to encourage Volkswagen to send Tennessee jobs to Mexico? I thought the GOP, Tea Party, etc. wanted less government interference .... this is much more.

    It was worthy of bringing up when the GOP was against it; not worthy of a comment when the workers themselves voted against it?

    UAW workers in Detroit do not make as much as non-union workers at VW so it seems that the GOP and the VW workers are the same people. VW in Germany is unionized so VW was playing along with the UAW, but then Germany is behind the times in freedom.

    Personally, I would not want to be associated with the UAW after what they have done to this country.

    Obviously the workers didn't think the plant would send their jobs to Mexico. They voted the union down.
    You should be ashamed of yourself, CTB. The reason the workers voted against the union? Because they discovered an undisclosed agreement between the UAW and Volkswagen that would have reduced hourly pay, bringing it line with what Ford, GM and Fiat-Chrysler pay in Detroit. Volkswagen already paid their employees better than the Big Three U.S. automakers. That's the reason VW was practically endorsing the UAW representation, it would have saved them money!! In other words, you were championing an effort that would have hurt workers, not helped them.
