Brickbat: Look for the Union Label


Welcomia /

The United Auto Workers is building a lakefront home in Detroit for its retired president, Dennis Williams. To save money, the UAW has hired a nonunion electrician, a nonunion excavation company, and is in talks to hire a nonunion plumber to work on the three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath, 1,885-square-foot stone home. Officials say using union labor would be too expensive.
