    Who is guilty for UAW membership decline?

    Two major groups are guilty for the decline in UAW membership.
    Just think a little bit.
    1. Government with Minimum Wage.
    2. UAW with increased wages.
    Think. When wages per hour goes up it cost more to manufacture anything. As wages goes up, automation becomes the thing. Over the long run in the manufacturing of any thing automation becomes cheaper to manufacture products than human labor..
    The best example I can give is the number of welder and painter on the auto assembly line. Robots do the work better and cheaper than humans.
