Wonder if this is related to Indiana’s passage of Right to Work legislation ~ Kentucky is not a right to work state ~

Once RTW comes into effect in Michigan I think we’ll see a considerable number of jobs moving back to the rust belt. So much of our infrastructure is optimized for industry that we’ve managed to keep companies like Johnson Controls in the area despite the unions.

The last factory I worked at was split into two parts with Johnson Controls running the injection molding end of the process and our company doing all the assembly and finishing processes.

The cost of obomacare and higher taxes haven't even kicked in yet. This is nothing compared to whats coming.
It's all about revenge. It's all about finishing the job his muslim brothers failed to do on 9/11.

There is a lot of truth in this statement. Burn the economy to the ground so that an new economy, a socialist/communistic economy, can be rebuilt from its ashes. People will accept anything when they are starving and freezing.

The Marxist doctrine verbatim.

Republican govenor Ernie Fletcher a few years ago tried to get Right To Work going in Kentucky, but it failed. It also didn’t help that the dumbass schizofrenic voters of this state who only accidentally vote Republican sometimes kicked him out after 1 term.

Kentucky is now basically an island. If Michigan gets Right to Work, Kentucky better get its ass in gear.

Johnson Controls grabbed parts of Plastech, the automotive supplier company I worked for that went completely bankrupt about 6 years ago.
