  •  Except MI is now... (8+ / 0-)

    ...a Right To Work For Less state now as well.  Just like the South - all thanks to our gerrymandered Republican state legislature.

    Wouldn't send any labor message at all, other then "MI has the infrastructure that TN doesn't."  Sadly.

        ...there's a few good folks there that could use a job, and a factory Sensata left behind!

        Float like a manhole cover, sting like a sash weight! Clean Coal Is A Clinker!

          Correct me if I'm wrong, but you should mention that Sensata (someplace) is a Romney company, and closed two days after the national election, and went to China. When Repubs get the big head , they think they can do anything. That didn't go over well with some of us, that know nothing about Sensata, except it was a money making factory right where it was, in this country.  
          I didn't do well with the "I'm not disclosing how much money and where it is scattered around the world, " either, or the idea that 90 +- % of us are worthless individuals.  " I'll tell you my plan, after I'm elected."
          That fool probably hauls all dogs on the roof of the wagon now.

      the morons who voted the republicans into office (and our people who stayed home) in 2010.

      The gerrymandered districts just makes it harder to undo the damage.

      So now the people of Michigan are paying the price for the way they voted 4 years ago. It's a shame, but anyone who votes for a republican as a kneejerk on one issue (whatever it may be) ought to know what they're getting by now.

      (Has a history of automotive production, in a moderately union friendly state.)  I hear that there might be some tax breaks from the state.  Good infrastructure too.
