Give me a break. Plants in Mexico and China do a better job for less money. The real winners from this strike will be the stock holders and the CEO when the plant is shut down. The losers will be everyone in Lebanon who benefit from the income generated by TRW (all of us). They can churn out a zillion perfect iPhones practically hand made in a month at one Chinese plant. Don't start thinking you are irreplaceable. The closed plants around you are proof. They build many of our vehicles in Mexico and have been for years. The quality has just gotten better and better. The unions chased those jobs right out of the country. They are not coming back.Dude they come tried it in Mexico they could not do it
Do you know what it is like in the real world? Most of us are working more hours for less pay and we all pay more for healthcare. The "Affordable Care Act" will make it more expensive for most of us to have insurance in 2014 than it was in 2013. My own premiums are obscene. This is not going away - the world has changed in the last 30 years. If you think you deserve what workers had in the 50's, WAKE UP! You will end up with nothing and you WILL end up working for less and you WILL pay more for insurance. No strike will change that.
The thing that SHOULD offend you is the union dues coming out of your check to pay for buildings and employees to "look out for your best interests"
$28 million of his "income" is stock gains. You understand that if the company does not do well that he loses the money? Would you be willing to risk your own income on the performance of the company? The company has performed well under him and his stock has more value. Would you be willing to take a raise in the form of stock options?
It is baffling that people cannot understand these simple concepts.
