The Virus Spreads
Despite higher pay than the members of the UAW last year, there are rumblings of unionization at Toyota's Kentucky assembly plant. I suppose I shouldn't blame the workers too much themselves, they are almost certainly on the receiving end of a lot of FUD from the UAW. The union is well aware that domestic auto sales have been shrinking and their representation in the marketplace has been dropping with it. As a result, they have been trying to break into the non-domestics for several years now without much success.
