a blight on the land
Canadian Auto Workers cannot build autos at a price people can afford, so they should move on to another industry that can compensate them for their skills and allow other Canadian workers to build autos. Honda and Toyota manage to build in Canada. The CAW and Chrysler would like a Honda Civic to cost $50,000 bucks and be built elsewhere so that they would have a captive Canadian market. Screw them.
You know its about time these union guys learned to work with the company. All I ever hear is this confrontational stuff no matter which union I have ever been in, they try to demonize management at every step. I remember when I was a member way back when, one CUPE local newsletter actually had a cartoon making fun of our boss (who was a decent guy). They all need to sit down and take a good look at the cliff they are about to run right off.The second thing is that we need to stop bailing these companies out so that management actually has to live in fear of failing and run a responsible business instead of paying each other rediculous bonuses for crappy work.The US government owned AIG is a perfect example of what economists call "rent seeking". Obama bails them out with taxpayer money and lo and behold people are getting bonuses, basically stealing money.Let them fail. They'll go into bankrupcy protection, people who have money will buy the profitable portions of the company and all will be well in a year.That is why the free market works.
*we're down to battlefield triage here and, as anyone knows, you put your limited resources into saving those with the best chance of survival.and chrysler just crawled outta the trench and back onto the mine field.*
