As Tennesseans debate the future of auto manufacturing in your state, I hope you will consider the experience of your neighbors to the north.
After last week's column about Volkswagen and the UAW, I received incredible emails.
Over the last century, the American middle class grew — thanks in no small part to labor unions formed to represent the interests of the workers who drive our economy forward.
Chattanooga is at the center of attention once again.

The United Auto Workers (UAW), once one of America’s most powerful unions, has seen its fortunes sag of late.

Utilizing the old Tubman public housing site to spur job creation is the highest and best use of the property both for the surrounding neighborhood and the community as a whole.
Heading into last week's State of the Union address, many folks were thinking the president would map out an agenda geared toward damage control. Commentators of all political persuasions agree that 2013 was a rough year for Barack Obama, and lots of them held that a "lay-low" strategy might be the best path for our commander in chief to pursue.
