Get rid of the UAW. They know damn well nobody else would give them a job. They are overpaid, useless, and dead weight. If you want us consumer to buy the best than hire the best. I work for Ford where we build the F-150 and the employees are just a joke. $28 an hour and I have no degree and my job is so easy. It is not like the old times when it was painful to work on the line. We need to help out and take a pay cut if we still want jobs. I would be happy with $15 for the job I do. There is no skill to working on the line. All you have to do to work in the union is pay somebody to get you a job. Lets stop kidding ourselves.

Hey you back stabbing idiot, more than likely (if you even work at ford) you are either an overpaid glorified time keeper called a supervisor. If you are an actual worker, you are probably at a parts plant and not an assembly plant this would explain why you do not break your back. I do not have the time to explain the importance of the UAW other than to say these greedy companies would not gives good pay and benefits out of the goodness of their hearts The UAW needs to get rid of you, not the other way around--be a man and tell your chairman you ill-informed, idiotic, senseless opinion
