Workers at a Nissan plant in Canton, Miss., picked a bird in the hand when they recently voted against forming a union, and that’s understandable. Veteran workers, who generally opposed the union, make $26 an hour. That is less than the nearly $30 an hour for similar autoworkers in unions at the major American carmakers — but almost twice the median hourly wage in Mississippi.

The Tulsa Bus Plant will have a temporary shutdown on Wednesday, August 30th and Thursday, August 31st. The Company attempted to file a Mass Unemployment claim on behalf of the employees but the State of Oklahoma would not approve as this was not a full week shutdown.

What this means for those off work during Aug 30 and Aug 31 is you will be responsible for filing your own initial claim.

The rally call of “Buy American” isn’t new, but the proposition looks very different in 2017 than it did in the 1970s. Back then, there were almost 20 million workers in the U.S. making goods in factories across the country (today, it’s 12.3 million). These workers made clothes, baseballs, toys, blue jeans, electronics and a host of goods you could find in your neighborhood store. If you want some Brach’s candy in 2017, it will come from their factory in Mexico.

“We are disheartened by the misconduct alleged in today’s indictment. Ms. King is no longer with the union and hasn’t been since February 2016. Based on our own internal investigation, we believe anyone who engaged in intentional misconduct is no longer employed by the UAW. We continue to cooperate with the DOJ and share information with the government.”
