Volkswagen workers win 5.6% raise

That would be the Volkswagen workers in Germany, not the ones in Chattanooga.

The German workers get this raise on top  of their current $60/hour rate. Workers in Chattanooga start at $14/hr. and can work their way up to $20.

They all build Volkswagens, so why does the company pay its US workers a third of what they pay their German workers?

In Germany the workers belong to unions. Their unions have seats on corporate boards.

In America they don't.
