Unions are not having much luck organizing in the auto industry according to this. This actually gave me an idea for a paper I will likely not have time to research or write; namely, about how deep antipathy for the Democratic Party and labor provides a competitive advantage in the scramble for foreign direct investment. This is a highly testable proposition (I’ll say about this more later). This map provides a nice look at where the auto plants are in the South.
