Right To Work SC Continues Ride on Michelin, Bridgestone, Continental

“Michelin, Bridgestone, Continental Shift Tire Industry Locus to South Carolina”

“The migration of tire production out of Ohio to southern states has been spurred by state and local government tax incentives and the states’ right-to-work laws that make union organizing more difficult. Auto makers, such as BMW AG and Volkswagen AG have set up plants in the South,” reports the Wall Street Journal.

Caterpillar “is already racing to expand capacity for mining equipment and has such a big backlog that it won’t be able to deliver on some orders for large mining trucks until 2014. Last month it spent $20 million to triple the size of its Sumter, S.C., plant that produces hydraulic cylinders.”
