Where are you Keynsesians, why is Airbus building in Alabama and not Michigan. They could have union labor in a blue state. It would be perfect.

Have you done research to explain your comments. It's easy to say what you state but where are your facts to prove that Michigan would be a better place to build the Airbus then Michigan.

I await your answers

The answer is money, of course.

Large corporations now have states bid for their business. Not good for states or Americans, but good for corporations.

What are you talking about, the State of Alabama is giving Airbus nothing while the Federal Government bailed out GM and Chrysler.

This story says Alabama is giving them over 150 million.

They bailed out the UAW more than anything. The hurry up Obama bankruptcies saved the UAW's bacon from deeper reforms and forced bondholders to take far lower recoveries than the union received. Stunts like that just serve to make places like Michigan toxic for future investors.

Because Alabama is OK with racing to the bottom. Alabama does not have a backbone. Alabama is weak, Michigan fights for what is right. Fuck Alabama and her race to the bottom. But it don't matter because once Airbus or all those companies find a pool of labor that will work for less, Alabama will be discarded like a used rag.

The bottom is reached much faster once the UAW invades your business and destroys it.
