Wonder if we will have any of our comrades in here talking about how they just want a "fair wage"

+eleventybillion.

Business is business. You walk, you take a risk. I'd say shove it in their faces and hire people who actually WANT to work.

Isn't Chrysler's shutdown coming up?

Forgive my ignorance, but would Chrysler be allowed to do this. What would happen if they did?

No they care, they care about themselves and their union 'Brothers'.

No, but they can bring in "scabs" if they want to.


What would happen if they did?


They would have to hire, screen and train a completely new workforce.

If Chrysler goes bankrupt will it be the 3rd or 4th time?

People with $70 an hour job go on strike for more money, and the people who are willing to work and earn a living are called "Scabs".



$70 an hour? What moonbat told you this? That is $142K per year!

They don't even make half of that. A union guy can make over 100K, but that is with 12 hours a day, more that 5 days a week.


When you figure in the benefits, labor can run in excess of $70/hr from UAW workers.

Fire them all and hire people who want to work. I am sure there are people who would love to work in those plants for $17-20+some benefits.

Some unions have lived beyond their lifespan, and the UAW is one of them. In this day and age that level pay for that work is not realistic anymore and the big 3 are hurting bad because of it.(there is also, of course, overpaid CEOs and badly engineered products in the equation )

The world and economy has changed..adapt or die.

No union and no retirement benefits. I wouldn't really want to work for Toyota, but it makes sense from a business perspective.

FWIW, Toyota doesn't make any RWD V8 cars in the US. Until a foreign automaker does manufacture RWD V8 cars with manual transmissions in the US that don't cost more than $40k, I'll stick with "domestics".

FYI the 2005-up Mustang GT is made in Flat Rock, MI at AAI which is considered a foreign manufacturing facility due to the part ownership with Mazda. The VIN # indicates the Mustang is a Japanese car, and shares Mazda's door handles while the manual transmission is made in Mexico and the automatic comes from France.

Sorry, no way can it add up to $70.00 an hour. The top wage earner (skilled trades) in the UAW makes around $33 an hour. Are you trying to say the benefits are worth an additional $37.00 an hour? Details please.

Looking at my current wage statement, my benefit package including medical/dental are listed as costing the company $361 every two weeks. This comes to $9386 per year, or $4.60 an hour based on 2040 hours per year.

This $4.60 per hour cost to the company is far short of the $37.00 it would take have a UAW member make $70.00 an hour.

I'm not in any union, I don't like what they do, but lets look at facts and not wave our hands around protesting about made up fake numbers and theories. That is what liberals do.
