President Obama's Taxpayer Funded UAW Event ( Tennessee )
Townhall ^ | Jul 29, 2013 | Scottie Hughes

Posted on 07/29/2013 3:41:26 PM PDT by george76

Under the cover of Obama’s campaign to sell his budget .. it is no coincidence that his visit is occurring at the same time Volkswagen is being pressured to accept the UAW into its Chattanooga factory.

The United Auto Workers have tried every other option at this point including calling in a favor with the union that resides in Volkswagen’s home plant in Germany.

...

it doesn’t look like the UAW’s normal campaign of propaganda seems to be succeeding; therefore, it’s time to call in the big dog himself and hope their investment of $148,967 into the reelection of President Obama does the trick.

However, didn’t the UAW and President Obama do their research enough to realize that Tennessee is a Right to Work State governed predominantly by Republican officials? With only Oklahoma and South Carolina bleeding a deeper red then Tennessee, wouldn’t they realize the people of Tennessee are intelligent enough not to want the economic doom of GM, Chrysler, and Ford to fall on the factory which has brought more then 3,350 jobs to the Volunteer State?

...

I have faith that Obama’s visit won’t do much in this debate and organizations like Citizens for Free Markets and workplacechoice.org who are leading the fight against the UAW, will eventually be successful in keeping the Chattanooga plant from unionizing. The facts are simple and I can guarantee the Volkswagen plant workers do not want to see the same fate that befell their plant in Detroit ... the labor union’s disease which eventually, like most diseases, results in economic death for a company.

My friends down in Tennessee can see the writing on the wall (and the can read it too), they don’t want their state becoming another “Detroit”. Many of those same workers in the VW plant probably got their start in a Detroit area automotive related plant which at the time, was HEAVY UNION influenced. They left Detroit and went “back home”, only to be followed by the Unions who are now trying to get them back. Hopefully, they will stick to their guns and keep the union out.

With todays lower wage scale, they better keep the Unions out. It is hard enough to raise money for a family without having to buy new cars for Union Goons.
