Chrysler is closing all it's plants for a month. How does that work with the unions? Do the hourly employees still get a portion of their pay? Can they collect unemployment?
Why reopen the plants at all they will be out of business, its time to liquidate, Chrysler is done Gm is next watch out Ford after all you still own the Lions and we know what losers they are.
They little guys have to give all there money to the big guys otherwise they are evil. And after that they are supposed to dig there own grave, fall into it, and somehow fill it in so they don't create a bad smell.
""now that they have broke the back of their employer""
So called free trade with lopsided deals for the american automakers has as much too do with the present situation as anything.
Throw in the banker/mortgage scam and manipulating the price of oil and here we are.
How they love to blame the little guy.Just like this banker/mortgage scam.The scumbags deregulate housing laws that were put there to safeguard the system and now it`s all the fault of the little guy once again that foolishly took the loans.
Questions: 1) What percentage of their regular pay can a union worker expect if his plant closes? 2) Is this situation considered a layoff? 3) How long would the plant have to be closed before the worker would be considered terminated? TIA
They get a raise to 99.9% for playing checkers for a month, then they immediately go on worker's comp for carpet-tunnel syndrome in their fingers. They even have a name for it- It's called "Gettlefinger" disease........(hey, I like that one!!!)
