The headline is misleading. I just read the whole article and there is not one iota of evidence that VW located their plant because of unions or "right to work" considerations.

I know we elect representatives and a Governor to run our state, what I don't know or understand is why some decisions are put on a ballot for the people to vote on (majority rule) and others are not.
Why wouldn't this be a decision made by the people it's going to affect?
If right to work doesn't pass in IN. it will be my solonum duty to see that all political constituents join the [[ HH-GMYM ]]

Wake up Indiana. In spite of your best efforts the future is coming for you and it's really pissed off.

You (formerly) industrialized states keep whining while you're not industrialized anymore - well, just go ask your shift steward. He's either at the bar on company time or at the store with his food stamps - or out rounding up a supply of Sudafed.

It is just another part of the GOP's relentless campaign of hate toward any person or organization that fails to agree with their lies and fantasies. Indiana landed huge Honda and Toyota plants with no problem. One company doesn't locate there and it is used as a pretext for attacking unions. I stand firmly on the side of organized labor against greed and the corporatization of our nation. If right-to-work is so wonderful...then Mississippi and Louisiana ought to be Heaven on earth! ha!

The Unions would have been more successful if they had bribed both parties at the state house. Then both parties could have abandon the citizens of Indiana. Socialism and Communism comes with a high price, so that explains why the union wants to take money from people that don't agree with their politics.
Your handle, "I Dare To Oppose Haters" is a little off. You are the hater. Hating the Constitution and loving the Socialist. You must hate America.

It's still a motto in this country but I'm not sure
that's not all it is:

"Justice will be done!"

I see $money$(effecting & affecting) justice as it does politics, as well as-it-does-all-else!
