Life in the Deep South, by Gabriel Aguilera

Unions and the Auto Industry in the Deep South

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.
