    Look if Trump can kill immigration, illegal or not. Limiting the number of workers.
    Bring back jobs by changing rules and taxes thus increasing the number of opportunities or jobs then business will have to respond with higher wages and benefits.

    What a lot don't understand is without jobs there is "NO" organizing to be had.. Let the jobs return and then it is up to the unions to get their heads out of their asses..

    Why doesn't he start at his winery, instead of asking to use foreign workers ?
    He talks from both sides of his crooked mouth.

    Default Fuyao workers seek union election: What we know now

    Employees at Fuyao Glass America today filed a request with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) for a representation election at Fuyao’s Moraine plant, the United Auto Worker said in a statement.

    “It has been hard because we are all working so hard for the company,” Fuyao worker Jeremy Grant said in a UAW release. “In return, we come to work facing constantly changing rules, communication barriers with our supervisors and no way to be heard about changes that will help us all win.”

    Fuyao Glass America has about 2,000 employees in Moraine, at what the company says is the world’s largest production site for automotive and safety glass.

    Default Chinese Auto-Glass Magnate Faces Union Challenge in Ohio

    FUQING, China — Cao Dewang saw his impoverished mother nearly die of starvation more than 50 years ago, during a famine driven by Mao’s mismanaged push to industrialize China.

    Today, Mr. Cao is a billionaire auto glass magnate, and he wants to give back. He has given a large chunk of his fortune toward construction of an enormous public library near his hometown and numerous Buddhist temples. He has paid for the medical care of distant relatives of employees who fall seriously ill. He entreats his fellow Chinese billionaires to give as well.

    “I started from the very bottom of society, so I understand the wants and needs of those at the very bottom,” said Mr. Cao in an interview earlier this year. “We should take care of the needs of our employees as part of a family.”

    Now, in a factory with roughly 2,000 employees in Moraine, Ohio, 7,600 miles away, Mr. Cao’s paternalistic attitude is facing a deep test.

    Workers at the plant — owned by Mr. Cao’s company, Fuyao Glass — will vote on Wednesday and Thursday on whether to unionize. Officials at the United Automobile Workers union say that frustration with highhanded and arbitrary treatment by supervisors has generated support for a union.

    Coming up on two years since we had any story to post about Fuyao Glass in Ohio. Seems a documentary was made starting with the companies entry into the US.

    'American Factory' Shows What Happens When One Multibillion Dollar Chinese Company Opens Shop In An Ohio Town
    In 2014, a Chinese billionaire named Cao Dewang bought a former GM plant in Dayton, Ohio, and spent two years and half a billion dollars refurbishing it to be part of his global empire of automotive glass manufacturing, Fuyao Group. The factory was sold to the people of Dayton as an act of largess by a benevolent foreign investor, generously restoring prosperity to the region by creating 2,000 new jobs, many of which went to those who'd lost their previous jobs when the GM plant closed in 2008, amid the global financial crisis.

    But not everyone was buying it. At the opening ceremony, in 2016, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown publicly embarrassed Chairman Cao, as he is known, by encouraging Fuyao Glass America's new employees to consider unionizing. Brown was banned from the factory's premises for his remarks, and once FGA was in operation, Chairman Cao threatened that if the workers did manage to unionize, he'd shut the place down.

    American Factory, a new documentary from the Academy Award-nominated filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar, tells the story of FGA's entry onto U.S. soil as a tale of two countries, of clashing cultures and work ethics, and of a ruthless brand of late-stage capitalism that has seen Chinese companies attempt to assert their dominance around the world.
    American Factory ends with a glimpse to the future, when automation will replace many of the jobs the human workers currently perform. It's a depressing film, yes, but it seems that the sequel, so to speak, will be far worse.
