Sarge and the other union lovers here need to pull your blinders off. I have been a member of 3 unions in my lifetime. (one was on a railroad in the south, don't know if that is as tough as working in an auto plant... but working in a railyard when it's 100 degrees is no cakewalk)
Unions had their place back in the day... But, they are so rigid they will kill the industry their members are working in just to win the negotiations. It is ridiculous. You can't kill the Golden Goose, but unions have done it time after time... Then sit there blaming everyone else. See a theme here?
