the city of Memphis and Shelby county TN would collectively sell their grandmothers to attract ANY kind of manufacturer...
the city is like Detroit with a southern accent...run by the same kind of folks that destroyed Detroit...
one look at the available labor force should be enough to discourage ANY manufacturer ... no matter the incentives!

Within two decades the only Union representation will be with Gov't employees. With a little luck they won't be around either. Unions have cut the throats of their members at the expense of widening the Union Bosses personal wealth and political power.

Think of ALL the union members' dues spent over the decades to BUY Democratic Congressmen. It must run into the BILLIONS...... And that isn't including the outright THEFT of Union funds by local Bosses. Unions are fast becoming the DINOSAUR of the American work force and society.

The Teachers Union (TEA) in Tn is no different than AFL-CIO as to
who they care for. They just speak better and milder, but taking
care of their dues and the leaderships high salary is priority # 1.
