1. What Hitler did by edict is being done in the US via the
court system. With Chrysler's bankruptcy it will decimate the UAW. Hard won gains now lost will be difficult to regain in a "new" Chrysler. They're trying to convince FIAT to move to Fenton MO (a suburb of St Louis and home to a Chrysler plant). What many Americans fail to understand is when foreign automakers move to the US they are seeking out union free states such as those in much of the south.

2. yes, and in the south is is more 'against the law' to unionize than to pay politicians
for quid pro quo votes. (like in DC)
