    comparing GM workers to South Korean and Japan Auto workers

    Every morning they wake up in south Korea at 5 am have breakfast and head off to work where they will do some morning stretching exorcises and work a hard day taking only 30 minutes lunch break. They are proud workers. they will would till they are 65 and retire on a humble pention.

    The GM worker is too hung over from last nights drinking to have a proper breakfast so they roll out of be and grab a cup of coffe at the quicke mart. they show up late for work but its OK the forman clocks everyone in on time because they give him free drugs gifts. Joe GM worker finally shows up at his pos around 10 am. He ponders if there is a way to find a way to get permanent diassability or should he just stick it out 10 more years to qualify for the Tax payer bailed out pension plan. After an hour of work its lunch break and off to the park he goes to drink two 40 oz Colt 45's . he will return to work an hour late but with the help of the forman is clocked back in on time..

    • They are proud workers. they will?? would till they are 65 and retire on a humble pention.___________ Yes very hard workers, just hope they don't get injured on the job. If they do they could be fined or fired! And if they damage any company parts or machinery, they must pay for it. Great place to work! By the way what is a pention? Bowties forever!!

    • Plus, they will out weight a worker by 200 lbs.........

    • GM UAW should give a hardy thank you to all of the non union people that have paid the union worker and the greedy mgt a very high salary and benefits. Non union people get nothing in return for their generous payments.
      All of you non union people out there, think about it.
      Unions tell you they are getting their benefits from the company or the gov't. They are not. They are getting it from you the customer. Higher prices and taxes.
