Once, unions served a very real purpose and greatly improved the common worker's life. Today, unions have become political machines and take money from people that have no choice in the matter, and campaign for political hacks that give the political union leaders huge powers, through the union membership voting machine. If unions would stick to work place problems and stay out of politics, there would probably be a lot more union friendly people in the right to work states. I say yeah for Sen. corker for calling a spade a spade. Tennessee does not need the UAW organization, and Tennessee does not need the backstreet union dealings that goes with the UAW and other unions (SEIU ?). Unions add another layer of crap to communications between workers and companies that only serve to hold down the common man from advancement and making his/her life better and raising his/her family another rung on the socioeconomic ladder of life. If the people of Tennessee and the surrounding states from which VW and related businesses will draw workers really want to advance their families in this world, they will vote to keep unions out of the work place. If one studies history, one can see that unions are one of the first organizations that become a mouthpiece for the "change" politicians talk about and how union bosses sell out their membership for political advancement and perceived importance. No union, please.
