I work for Chrysler and the deal they want is to reduce our pay by a doller an hour. That adds up over time. The health care plan did change along with Ford and G.M, we have to pay higher co-pays and they nerrowed the amount of DR's we can see.

bush is doing it again with pension act. remember when he signed in the bankruptsy law. if you did'nt file for it before a certain date you could'nt get out of your debt like in the past. delphi filed day before and look what happened their. now he's protecting the gov't from having to pay for co,s pensions in the future. so get ready auto industry. when they go under like delphi no gov't pension will be their without more concessions and give ups by the middleclass again. he see's trouble in the airline companys and foresees that the auto industry will have more retirees than workers. 5 to 10 years from now there will be more cars be assembled in mexico and china than in this country thanks to all new rules congress is passing. this is what bush wants so the people he put in congress can pass these laws to save the rich. so g.m.'s pension plan will be turned over to the gov'nt if you are ss. age all you'll get is ss. no pension from auto co. think and read about it before you keep voting for republicans. in the 70's when you were layed off from your job you did'nt have to claim your unemployment on your 1040 untill reagan got it passed in congress. there will be more later!!
