The United Auto Workers gave GM a strike notice for midnight tonight. I do know that workers recently received a pay raise so I'm not sure of their other issues.

Hopefully job security is at the heart of the strike.

They should be happy they still have a job. GM is closing a parts plant any laying off 500.

The auto makers are all going to soon be out of business anyway... They are being forced and coerced to bring the plants back here, so the unions can put the arm on them... This will in turn make the cars so expensive nobody here can by them in this depressed economy... Looks like unions are cutting their noses off to piss off their faces... I guess we will all be able to see them put that half a loaf theory into action... If I'm going to pay $137,000.00 for a car it won't be any GM, Chrysler, or Ford junk... It'll be what I drive now...

GM and the union have came to a "tentative" agreement. Of course it includes significant wage increases. A new hire can reach the peak pay of $29.00 a hour in less than 8 years.

Look at the shape of today's unions. The teachers union's useless. The Teamsters are long time crooks. It's no wonder they are all members of the Democrat Party.

Let's also take a look at todays U.S. economy, where unions represent less than 7% of U.S. workers, as opposed to the economy in 1980, when U.S. unionized workers were 20%. Better economy or worse?

Union wages are higher but they produce a higher priced product. I support the rights of workers to unionize.

So if unions helping workers make a living wage didn't crash our economy.....what did?

Didn't you say the 80's were terrible because of Reagan?

I do too, but I think it should be a choice... I also think the unions need to be cleaned up... Too much money, temptation, and ease of access to be worth a shit any more... Now that honesty and integrity have been made archaic and taboo terms in our modern secular/progressive society, these unions can no longer be allowed to police themselves... I wish it wasn't that way, but sadly it is... I have been a member of five different unions in my work career, so I'm not some outsider looking at the surface and making an assessment... None of them are what they were intended to be, none.!!
