  4. […] About This Blog and My Shameless Plug […]

  5. Dean, Thanks for another good article. I, like you have mixed emotions about the effect of right to work othen than the preception of right to work states. Growing up in a southern state and having to move to Michigan for a job (48 years ago). I see both sides oof this coin. I believe the reason for the foreign auto companies going to the states where they are located is for two main reasons. 1. Incentatives to locate there. Tax breaks and financial help in locating there. 2. Much cheaper electric rates as all use a lot of electric in production. Electric is 33% cheaper from TVA than it is in Michigan.I have a brother who lives in southern Ky. His electric rates are about half of what mine are in Michigan. there is a lot more than right to work involved in their decisions of where to locate.

  6. Dean,

    I have recently begun receiving your blogs and am really enjoying your insight. You are an excellent communicator!
