The recent vote at the (Volkswagen) plant in Tennessee is not only a victory for VW’s employees, but a triumph for America. Too long, far too long, have unions been a sanctuary for those whose primary motives are to pilfer dollars from honest working men and women while at the same time giving preferential treatment to relatives and friends. Not to be overlooked are practices that amount to bigotry and coercion against workers, many of whom have no choice but to pay dues to union bosses.

Spend a few moments sitting at your local coffee shop and you’ll overhear hints of this in the conversations all around you. Whether we profess faith in Jesus or not, most of us live with a deep need for fairness in our daily lives. It’s what makes our world tick.
