Why There Will Never Be another Auto Assembly Plant Built in the United States

By

There was a time that Unions were necessary.  I remember reading Upton Sinclair's, book "The Jungle" and thought about how horrendous America was to let workers operate in the conditions that were so prevalent in the days of the Chicago Stockyards. 

Flash forward to 2010.  The balance of power has switched so much that Chicago is on the verge of bankruptcy.  The Unions are killing conventioneering in Chicago.  Chicago used to be one of the top three convention centers in North America, but between Chicago having the highest retail tax in North America, and the Unions chokehold on the economic flow, it's nothing short of horrendous.

Listen to the last few sentences,

and you'll see why the big three are leaving the United States.

Ford wants to build one of these plants in the United States, but the U.A.W. won't allow this sort of integration.  Go figure.  Go bye, bye, U.A.W.  You won't allow it, so you miss 100% of the jobs that this plant would create.

Our American Auto Companies have figured it out and are right in their desire to move offshore.  There's no way that American Unions would allow this to happen in the United States.  So the Union reps will just have to bitch and moan about how there's no work.  It's their own fault and for whatever reasons, I can't believe that they can't see the forest through the trees. 

It's time for them to take a hard look inside and consider re-tooling unionization from the inside out.

Thanks for the explanation, Larry.

Sounds like the UAW missed the memo that competition (and sharing) makes things better.

The UAW has destroyed the automotive industry to the same extent that the teachers' unions have destroyed the school system.

Yet, they want us to keep consuming, when we do not produce anything.  This action cannot cannot be sustained.

I think there could be more plants built in the USA, but they will be in right-to-work states. I still believe the bad press that Toyota got relative to recalls was, at least partially due to the fact that many, if not all Toyotas are built by non-union labor.

We used to have a thriving steel industry in western PA. That industry is no longer in existence, mostly as a result of the labor unions.

The economy of the State of Michigan may never recover from the damage caused by out of control unions. The same situation also exists in California as well as other states.

Does anyone have data showing economic indicators by right-to-work states?

There will be more plants built in the US, but they won't be union plants... and that means that until there is a reasonable balance in power between unions and management, the 'big three' won't be building the plants. 

To balance the power, give companies the ability to fire any worker that strikes.  If the work isn't worth doing for $x, they don't need to do it.  And companies wouldn't want to mass fire employees, because they are expensive to replace if they are skilled...

 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
