Labor South reading roundup - The dark side of "Detroit South" and still waiting on the Russia-2016 presidential election smoking gun

A couple of interesting articles appeared recently that are worth passing along (apologies if you can't access these links here. I'll keep trying, but you may just have to copy and paste to access):

The dark side of "Detroit South"

Peter Waldman's report, "Inside Alabama's Auto Jobs Boom: Cheap Wages, Little Training, Crushed Limbs", in Bloomberg puts the lie to the glorified tales about "Detroit South" that politicians and chambers of commerce want to tell us. A worthy read given the major union campaign taking place at the giant Nissan plant in Canton, Miss.


Now back to Russia and the 2016 presidential campaign

Interesting points by Stephen Cohen in Nation magazine recently that challenge MSNBC's constant drumbeat since its candidate lost. I don't like Trump, and I don't like Putin. However, I'm still waiting on the smoking gun regarding Russian hacking. Is it going to come? What I do know unequivocally is that the DNC actively worked to undermine Bernie Sanders' campaign, and that was reprehensible and I'm not forgetting it.
