125. You have bought into the bullshit about union workers being over-paid etc
Their pay is comparable to North American plants for foreign companies, this isn't about unions bringing down the big three. This is about the GOP wanting to erode workers rights for people who helped Democrats win downticket races and the presidency.

You think people SHOULD get paid $10 an hour to do something no one else getting paid $10/hour could do? Could my secretary (who makes $10 an hour) assemble a fucking car? No. Why should their wages be comparable to people who couldn't do their job and aren't skilled workers?

The Republicans and corporatists want you to work for as little as they can get away with paying you, because their profits will go up even more than they already have. Sad that you believe their excuse for this.
