This is what a nation in decline looks like. Two thirds of the people have left Detroit that can't even afford to run all of it's street lights. Once the largest manufacturing city in the country, now a rotting corpse.
The Wall Street and corporation bought congress gave all the living wage manufacturing jobs to Communist China and now the chickens have come home to roost. We let the corporations buy congress and turn us into a 3rd world nation.

I would usually disagree with most posts on topix,but that is the truth if it were ever spoke.We have let them run the labor part of this nation in the ground since Reagan passed"The International Trade Act"in the early 80`s!It will take a lot of years to undo the damage done to this economy and country.

Have you ever considered decaf? Blacks were inticed to Detroit from the south when they had good jobs up there. I don't think it it their fault the corporations took all the manufacturing jobs to communist China!

Is ever one a negro to you. I wonder if you have been evaluated by a good psychologist and currently receiving the appropriate medications. As a society one should be concerned with your posts that are filled with such nonsense that a person of good mental health would no better than post such senseless information. If you are actually native American than you would be a man of color too. If you don't have health insurance than perhaps a mental health center could assist you.

I suppose the Federal Government didn't have a thing to do, with good jobs, going elsewhere. Lib hero, Bill Clinton-NAFTA. We all know it has nothing to do with O. Nothing is ever his fault. It's always someone else! GO crazy Indian!!!

I know I am dumb. But "Detrat" Michigan is not only place going broke within next four years. If Obama gets his way, our money will not be worth the paper it is written on. Obama wants to be all things to all people. And never hated a tax on the rich or poor or middle class - just a fake socialist.

HAD IT NOT: have been for the Union: Detroit and a lot of other Places, might still be in Existence, but" the pay level would be something like Maybe 80 cent an hour. and" the worker's treated worst than: a bunch of hog's in a pen. You Damn people do not have a Clue: as to what you are talking about. Try working all day for 50 Cent's. yes that's right. when i started working in 1950: 50 cent's a day was the pay, IF" you could find that. maybe just maybe: one person or family out of maybe 50 had a car or mule or a bike to ride.
Yes, when I started working in Ohio in 1965 I worked for Duke Energy for $1.40 per hour and now they make 22.10 per hour but the damn union had nothing to do with it. They are non Union, inflation caused the increase in wages. Back in the 60's gasoline was $1.10 per gallon. Look at Obama's gasoline prices now. Even under old Bush gasoline was less than half what it is today

You are probably exactly right. I may be thinking of greezing oil changing and plugs being the price I quoted. But my main point was the damn unions only cost prices to go up and up and we all paid for their crying and stricking. Good companies pay high wages on their own and the unions only cost them money stricking and bitching all time.

I can see both the good and bad. They do prevent employers from running over their worker's and that part I like. Kentucky is an "At-Will" state, meaning that your employer can send you home packing without cause at anytime. Unions can provide better job security,a voice to negotiate employee benefits, seniority...etc.
