UAW demands labour board review Volkswagen plant vote | World news | theguardian.com



Oh, don't you just love those right wing bastards. Threaten workers, tell them they'll lose their jobs if they dare to vote to join a union. And then claim that the 'will of the worker' has prevailed.





During the campaign Republican senator Bob Corker, a staunch opponent
of unionisation, claimed VW would award the factory another model if
the union was rejected. The comments prompted President Obama to accuse
opponents of the UAW of being “more concerned about German shareholders
than American workers.”

Corker’s comments also led to a clash with
Volkswagen, which has remained neutral on the vote. “There is no
connection between our Chattanooga employees’ decision about whether to
be represented by a union and the decision about where to build a new
product for the US market,” Volkswagen said in a statement.

The
campaign against the UAW was also backed by a year-long campaign by
Americans for Tax Reform, the lobby group run by Grover Norquist.


And yet people keep voting these bastards into office. Keep listening to, and believing their lies. Anyone not making a million dollars a year who votes Republican is voting to be robbed. Voting to be lied to. Voting to be trampled under the boot heels of Grover Norquist and his ilk. I'd say that the dumb shits deserve what they get, but the laws these bastards put through hurt us all. Wake up, people! The Democrats aren't much better, but the Republicans are going to keep following the Koch agenda until "we the people" have no rights, no cash, no freedom.
