Maybe you're job should be offered to the lowest bidder. Maybe someone from India who will work for peanuts. How'd ya like that you aszwipe? Go swallow more propaganda offered up on Fox News from Sean Hand job or the rest of those toucholes who laugh at morons like you as they check their fat bank accounts.Your typical Union laborer has an IQ in the double digits. Jobs should be bid to the lowest bidder.
This imbecile is cying over "only" getting 16.50 an hour for driving a forklift!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
If these morons wanted to earn big money maybe they should have gone to college and learned something.
Operating a backhoe does not entitle you to an appearance on the Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous!!!

GM may have only needed the bailout because people in this country no longer make enough to afford new GM's. Maybe GM didn't need a bailout at all. Most of the banks that took a bail out claim they never needed it. I'm no conspiracy nut, but I do believe in the assistance of propaganda. The more you read, and investigate. The closer to completing the puzzle you become. At this point you realize the puzzle looks nothing like the picture on the box that you were sold.

I respectably disagree, If you don't collect any gov't assistance, can pay you're bills. stay out of debt, and still manage to save even one dime with todays wages. You are a businessman.

What picture was I sold? There is no puzzle. GM was sinking.
Do you not know what really happened or are you trying to revise history? Before you post any more erroneous information maybe it is you who need to do some reading.
GM was on the verge of bankruptcy and without the taxpayer bailout they would've gone under. It was they(GM) that asked congress for the bailout money. It was not forced on them. Chrysler also took bailout money but Ford did not because they were the only one of the big three that didn't need it. They had cash reserves that helped them to cover losses during the decline. If GM didn't need it they would have refused it the way Ford did. They didn't refuse because they needed it...desperately. The reason that the big three US auto manufacturers were close to disaster was for many reasons in 2008 but experts all agree that among them a big one was because of the UAW rules, benefits and compensation. That's not a secret or a puzzle. Unions helped to almost sink the U.S. auto industry in Detroit. A little reading about what the public sector unions have done to the city of Detroit might be in order as well.
Last December the U.S. government recently sold the balance of the GM("Government Motors") stock it held on behalf of the U.S. taxpayers. In the end the taxpayers lost $10 billion. You can look that up.

If my memory serves me correctly. Ford did take the bailout. However they paid it back in a year. Later stating they really didn't need a bailout. Robotics have a lot to do with what is happening. So when a robot can Build, plumb, wire, heat, drywall, paint, and finish a construction project. Low wages my be understood. Be careful what we wish for. Otherwise we will all be on a permanent vacation receiving a check from the gov't. It sounds great. However half the country will put us down.

Your memory does not serve you. Ford did not take bailout money. The money they got was "green initiative" from the Department of Energy. Money meant to help US auto manufacturers with more efficient, hybrid and electric vehicles. There is/was a difference. It's not that hard to find these things out.
Automation in the auto industry has been in place for many years. It hardly qualifies as the reason that GM was in trouble. If anything, automation cut costs and made the production process more efficient. Union demands are what almost sunk the big three. There was no way to support those levels of compensation in the economic downturn we experienced in 2008. That is shown by what happened to the salary and benefit structures at GM and the concessions the UAW was forced to swallow. Again, not really that hard to find this information.
Take a close look at what labor unions have done to Detroit, MI in both the public and private sectors.
