It appears that local politicians in this area feel that our money is their money and they know what is best for us. I am a local resident and taxpayer whose contribution to Hamilton County's tax base helped pay for the development of the Enterprise South Industrial Park. I work at Volkswagen and it has been a boon to me and my family and the families of my coworkers.
Tim Boyd or Bill Haslam have no dog in this fight and I have the right to form a union in my workplace. It really makes you wonder what these guys' real agenda is because representing the interests of their actual constituents seems to be low on their priority list.
I suspect their real goals are to support local monied interests in their goals of keeping wages depressed in this region to exploit our local population. Their comments on our union organizing drive are a dead giveaway to their motives.
