Scares me to think that this is a result of right to work bullshit, but at least it's jobs and American cars.

You might think the Chevy Camaro is one of the ultimate expressions of American motoring muscle--and you'd be correct, except for the fact that it has been built in Canada since its 2009 return to production.

That won't be the case with the sixth-generation Camaro, however, as production is moving out of the Oshawa Car Assembly plant in Canada and into the Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant in Michigan.

Reasons for the move, according to Chevrolet, are improved production efficiencies and lower capital investment, as the Camaro is the only rear-wheel drivevehicle currently built at Oshawa. The Lansing plant also builds the ATS and CTS, so adding the Camaro to it "consolidates the RWD assembly with the Cadillac CTS and ATS."

    Well, let's hope every worker joins the union to ensure their pay is fair, that work conditions are safe, and that people are treated like human beings. Snyder is trying to anoint himself King. Wonder how he'll rig the next election to keep the GOP in control? I'm sure ALEC has even more heinous legislation just waiting for the GOP House to return and try to pass it. What's next? Taking away the female vote entirely? Making more cities go bankrupt so his EMs can take over? Wait...we voted against that. And then the legislature passed it back in. MI is not longer a democracy. Thank you, Koch Brothers, ALEC, and Mr. Stamas for your support of the rich.
