I guess I just don't understand why people like you say it is OK for a CEO to make millions if the company is willing to pay it, but the union workers are wrong for accepting the money that the company is willing to pay them.<quoted text>
Correct, there is nothing wrong with CEO's making millions, if that is what the company chooses to pay them. Tell me you'd turn it down, because you think it's too much, and I'll call you a liar. The problem is that the goverment bailed these jokers out- the fact that govt. money going towards this is the crime.
Cars are also very high because of the unions driving up wages, pensions, and benefits to a level that is outrageous. Everyone in the automotive industry is part of the problem, when it comes to expensive cars.
As far as the bailout. I do agree it is a crime. The governmet should have thrown the CEO's out on street when they gave the bailout. It was mis management that caused the failure of the car industry, banking industry, etc. I agree that wages are high here in the US, but then again so is the cost of living. The Chinese workers make 5% or less than what the US worker makes. But prices there are also 5% of what we pay here also.
