Non-union shop*

by Michael O. Allen on April 9, 2008

Let’s see. BMWs have never been my favorite. I’m all for innovation and cutting-edge engineering but there’s something to be said for beauty, too. While BMWs have always had a reputation for the former and, as to the latter, beauty has always been in the eye of the beholder.

This writer from the Telegraph in London is not overly impressed with the new BMW X6, which the carmaker claims is the first “Sports Action Coupe” ever made.

What speaks more to me is that BMW built it in a non-union plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina, that chock full of robots, at least 300 of them. Unions made this nation great, created the middle class, and allowed generations to live the American dream.

I know BMW built this monster for the overfed and overcompensated crowd, not for people who would appreciate my sentiments. I have two words: Don’t buy!
