Raised to level 7. You dont know what you are talking about. "I dont think the nuclear crisis will last much longer" You have to be one of the biggest idiots on the planet.
1st, The UAW wont be getting a increase in benefits in this contract. 2nd, The fact that you try to blame high taxes and cost of living on UAW wages and benefits prove you are nothing more than a anti-union fool who will lie, and twist facts in any way you can to cater to your own greed at the cost of the average working US citizen. Most people in this country see you and the republicans for what you really are. Unions will make a strong comeback when people start realizing they have been manipulated by the greedy rich in this country.
Yeah, thats why he CHOSE to buy the DETROIT pistons in MICHIGAN, and not invest in a california team. You are to stupid to even debate with.
The working class in America hit their peak standard of liveing in 1972, that is also when union membership in America was at it's peak. Since then there has been a slow consistant decline of both. The rich will destroy capitalism, because it is getting to the point where it only benifits the rich. When we reach the point that 90% live in poverty and 10% live in the comfort of enormous wealth capitalism will fall and the rich will be chopped down due to their imorally excesive greed. Becareful what you wish for
Notice how toyota was the only car company who had a decline in march sales. Notice how many times that has happend over the last 12 months. Toyot is more and more being seen as a loser.
The same thing they do with all our other freedoms, like free speach, freedom of religion, freedom to protest, right to bare arms. I guess you cheer that to. You are a anti-American idiot and you dont even know it. what a moron you are.
boat_drinks, you are right, Gores is not from california, he grew up in michigan. That is why he has a strong interest in michigan. The guy who started this post Knows nothing.
No, give everyone in the country a 10% pay raise who work for company's who at presant can aford it, and you will see every buisness start to do better. The rich dont drive the economy because they only spend a very small % of their income. Working people spend most of their income into the economy and this is good for the economy overall. But we are doing the opposite, and thats why the standard of living for the average American has been going down.
No, But you will know when you do. Every auto worker in the country (including the transplants) will start being forced to take huge wage cuts. This will inturn cause every other working man and woman to take wage cuts, and companys sales will start to drop causing a depression that will make the one in the 30s look like a picnic. Be careful what you wish for.
I am a line worker at Ford. In 1976 the price of a car was 26% labor. Today it is 7% labor. How is tht taking from the poor?
The biggest contribution to the great depression was that the majority of the wealth was not distributed broad enough. Not all of us can be exsecs, or doctors, or oil tycoons. Ditch diggers will allways be therte. If 75% of the pop[ulation had PHDs, then those with masters would be the ditch diggers. You are missing the point. Just because one's talents are not inline with societys format for what is a high skilled worker, should not mean that person is sentenced to a life of poverty.
If unskilled laborers were not able to achieve middle class status back in the 50s, then this country would have never had a big enough middle class to support a world power through tax revenue, and this country could have never reached the level of greatness that it did.
In the 1950s over half the US workforce was union. 40 hr work week, ot pay, fair wages, better working conditions, were all brought about by the UAW. I know my history, it is you who are confused. If you really want to see what it is like without unions in this country, study about working conditions in the 1880s and 1890s. You have been miss lead by the propaganda that has been pumped into our society for 80 years by the rich. They have convinced people unions are socialist, or comunist, but it is all propaganda to turn the working class in this country against unions so they can keep even more of the wealth to themselves. I repeat, I know my history very well. It is you who needs a history lesson.
country through a strong middle class. Without the strong middle class that was built by the UAW, this country never would have been able to pay for the military build up that caused the downfall of the USSR. Every American owes their standard of liveing to the UAW. Even those who are not union. Now, lets here from all the ignorant antiunion fools.
