Only the deaf, blind and liberals have failed to see the greatest roadblock to a more favorable financial climate and economical status of our automotive producing industry. There can be no question that the obscenely high wages paid to the heavily unionized auto workers have been the downfall of all American automakers.
Proof of this problem can be found when comparing U. S. auto workers wages employed in U. S. auto factories to those employed in foreign auto producing plants. The difference between the two groups is stunningly over-balanced in the U. S. workers favor. It is also the primary reason why foreign auto sales have declined significantly less percentage-wise than their American counterparts.
If a survey was taken over a wider spectrum of manufacturing entities that have U. S. union workers in comparison to non-union workers it would most likely show similar results. The pure and simple truth is that U. S. unionized labor forces readily admit to drawing as much as 30 percent more in pay. Non unionized manufacturing companies can produce a product similar, and in many cases, superior to the union controlled shops.

The problem of overpaid CURRENT employees pales in comparison to the costs of maintaining the bloated retirement policies of the UAW!
The big auto companies/UAW need to be left alone to die a natural death in bankruptcy....no bailout...no sympathy.
To the employees of a most abused, and at the same time most used system.
If you do not force your company to restructure, you will be screwed. but of course that means you will act in concert, I have no doubt in my mind that you will not, so, guess what, like much of the unionized, nonunionized, unemployed, retirees, and welfare types, were all screwed.
Hey Obama, I Hope you can Change that.
Thadeus McCotter was on local radio and was not opposed..
In the bill he was referring to, there was a provision that if 1/3 of the organization requested the ballot be done in secret it over-ruled the rest of this bill which is an absolute mess.
So the question is, what is the langauge as we speak?
Don't get me wrong, I still don't trust them on this....
As a small business owner, Union THUGS of any sort come sniffing around my place... I will Immediately go JOHN GALT on everyone. I’ve done it before, it’s not so hard.
Attention all employees... Union THUGS have entered the building, so as of this MOMENT, Everyone is FIRED! This business is hereby CLOSED. If the UNION THUGS are still on the premises in 2 minutes, they will get a lesson on the 2nd Amendment.
Thank you and Good Luck!
