Now Michigan companies will be forced to hire unqualified, untrained non-union workers and the quality of their products and services will suffer. Union made products are by far superior. I try to only purchase products with the "union made" label.

Does your TV have a union label? Your computer?

Not to mention that Japanese cars are far superior to Detroit.

If your skill set is no greater than broom pusher then those establishments are most likely your only option. Whats your point. There are many educated black people in high ranking corporate positions.

Sound like you just need an excuse for your failures in life.

You mean that now Michigan can now hire motivated individuals who want to work instead of harboring lazy, incompetent union members who spend more time on break or filing grievances rather than trying to be productive.

Kinda like those hard working Auto union members caught on camera drinking and smoking pot on their lunch.

Are you talking about the 489,000 Honda CRVs and 820,000 Civics that were recalled or the 7,430,000 Toyotas that were recalled, the largest recall of all time?

The new law will not, for the most part, change who is hired nor whether a union represents the workers. It will simply give individual workers the choice of whether or not to join the union.

We're all "pro-choice", aren't we?

The Honda recall relates to potential wiring problems with low-beam headlights on 10-year old cars. Big deal.

Japanese cars last longer and are more reliable than American cars.

Gee the top 3 recalls in auto history are all American made union built:

Largest Recalls in Auto history
Rank
1 Ford 21 million 1970-1980 cars and trucks Transmissions that fail to engage Park

2 Ford 15 million 1992-2003 cars and trucks Cruise control deactivation switch fires

3 Ford 7.9 million 1988-1993 Taurus, Explorer, Probe & Mercury Sable Ignition switch fires

A testament to the union quality that you so loudly proclaim

Don't forget the Ford Pinto, the GM diesels, and the GM X-cars, winners all.

But, in fairness, these are mostly design flaws. The union gets the blame for the sloppy workmanship that goes along with the poor design. But, hey, who can blame them when they're drunk or stoned on the job?

The union had their time in the sun 50 - 60 years ago. However today with OSHA and labor relations there is little need for unions. However many of those who still cling to the unions do so because they do not have marketable skill sets and or lack the motivation and education to succeed outside the union shop.
