Where is the story, why was the real story not posted.Bernd Osterloh, who is the Volkswagen AG General and Group Works Council chairman, said that future investments in the South might be hurt if workers will not unionize. Osterloh said that, if co-determination isn't guaranteed, it would be more difficult to vote in favor of building another auto plant in the South. "I can imagine fairly well that another VW factory in the United States, provided that one more should still be set up there, does not necessarily have to be assigned to the South again," "The conservatives stirred up massive, anti-union sentiments," Osterloh said, according to Reuters. "It's possible that the conclusion will be drawn that this interference amounted to unfair labor praxis." Why try and hide the truth on what is going on here? VW does not like BIG GOVERNMENT trying to run their business and they will not do business with the Southern states. Corker and the GOP blew it, quit trying to hide the truth!
