That Corporations and Unions can work together in such a way that both profit, and you find this conclusion where....hmmm?

Well in that socialist leftist rag...Forbes

In 2010, Germany produced more than 5.5 million automobiles; the U.S produced 2.7 million

OK so we are dealing with highly successful corporations

At the same time, the average auto worker in Germany made $67.14 per hour in salary in benefits; the average one in the U.S. made $33.77 per hour.

And apparently a highly successful workforce even if highly unionized.


European American Business Council, puts it, union-management relations in the U.S. are “adversarial,” whereas in Germany they’re “collaborative.”

Oh, so if people work together, dammit, how horrible, they succeed.

Yet in the US

Volkswagen’s Chattanooga plant, the nonunionized new employees get $14.50 an hour, which rises to $19.50 after three years.

Hmmm....I wonder...hmm

He answered, “Because they can get away with it so far.


Anyone who believes a Republican [and quite a few blue-dogs] must either be dim or deluded, or probably both.

Working together....breeds success.

OMG.....that smacks of socialism......hmmm......good

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
