    Default The Unions Are Coming ... or Not

    South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley likes to say she wears high heels not as a fashion statement but to kick unions.
    Such anti-union stiletto swagger probably plays well on the campaign trail, and Haley is running for re-election this fall. But a governor who turns up her nose at good-paying jobs? Be careful what you wish for.
    To hear some Southern Republican politicians, labor unions are the William Tecumseh Sherman of our time, aiming to lay waste to the South. Conservative activist Grover Norquist said as much during the battle over whether the United Auto Workers would represent Volkswagen workers at its plant in Chattanooga, Tenn.

    In South Carolina, Haley says she would welcome more of those non-union BMW jobs. But “I discourage” factories with unions, she added. Her Democratic gubernatorial opponent, State Sen. Vincent Sheheen, sensibly said that “if Ford Motor Co. wanted to bring 10,000 jobs to South Carolina, we would welcome them with open arms.”
    Vincent Sheheen says he would welcome Ford to South Carolina , but would he welcome the unions There was NO mention of that

    "After the vote in Chattanooga, the head of Volkswagen’s top works council in Germany suggested that the company might think twice before locating again in the South.

    “I can imagine fairly well that another VW factory in the United States, provided that one more should still be set up there, does not necessarily have to be assigned to the Stouth again,” Bernd Osterloh told the German newspaper, Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

    It would serve certain Southern politicians right."
