Yeah, Corker, About Those New Jobs

Senator Bob Corker of TN is soooo proud of himself and the antics of his GOP friends here. They managed to spread enough fear mongering, threats, and guilt among the workers at the VW plant in Chattanooga so that the employees voted against a union by about 86 votes .  Not a big landslide but enough for the Repubs in this state to go tooting their horns. And lord knows there are ENOUGH of them here……Blackburn, Campfield, Corker, Alexander, Duncan, and De Jarlais to name a few.

Well,…..lookey here: VW is not so happy about the goings on during the voting.

"I can imagine fairly well that another VW factory in the United States, provided that one more should still be set up there, does not necessarily have to be assigned to the south again," said Bernd Osterloh, head of VW's works council.
"If co-determination isn't guaranteed in the first place, we as workers will hardly be able to vote in favor" of potentially building another plant in the U.S. south, Osterloh, who is also on VW's supervisory board, said.
Remember: "The board (NLRB) spent years in the crosshairs of GOP lawmakers after its general counsel brought a controversial complaint against Boeing in April 2011. Republicans tried to strip the independent agency of its funding and even shut it down temporarily by declining to confirm board nominees."

I just wish the American people would wake up and see what hypocritical blowhards these Repubs are. Everything is for their benefit. The bottom line is king. They have continued on their march for decades. If they cannot control the workplace, the voting booth, women's reproductive life, education,  deport every nonwhite available (except those that do their laundry and yards…) and push their view of the Bible into everyday life…..they will not rest. Enough is enough. Looks like someone's calling their bluff this time.
