The bloated unions don't need anything more for a long time.
They're already making 2-3 times as much as any body else with comparable skill levels.
A contract fork truck driver making $25.00/hr is ludicrous.
The unions had their place in the 40's & 50's, getting the kids out of the factories, health insurance, better working conditions and pay, but Enough is enough.
I was in major manufacturing plants in the 70's and they were bloated pigs then. You could catch them stealing red handed but the union said so what. They had the 'sub pay' for layoffs then. The - Senior - workers would take the layoff and get 90% of their wages to sit on their fat asses at home
Their main negotiating chant with the companies was: More, more, you Know we deserve more than anybody else.
Ford's profits should go to paying down their debt for now and build a cash reserve for the next imminent downturn which can happen any day. The economy and fundamentals are still in the crapper, and no matter what Washington does, nothing is going to improve for at least the next 6 months.
