    nothing to do with it.  Workers need to be unionized and contribute union dues and be shown the union way of promoting social justice.  That helps us all to elect good Democrats.

      Which is accurate. Is that on the wage benefit front the union offered very little to these workers (that they didn't already have) but the risk they might lose their jobs. I'm surprised it was as close as it was.

    •  "Wages have nothing to do with it"? Seriously (3+ / 0-)

      What do you think people join unions for?

       BTW, I've been a union man all my life.
      My point is that the UAW has given away too much. That is why they failed at VW.
