U.S. workers rally for Japan's Toyota
Toyota employee Kathryn Ragsdale and two hundred fellow Americans maintained a vigil in Congress this week with one simple purpose: to show support for their Japanese employers.

I am always astounded by everyone thinking there are 2 sides to every story.
It appears to me that this whole issue is, again, all about the money.
How many jobs offset a death.Apparently, the auto workers believe a few people killed due to faulty design is offset by the jobs provided.
I think it became obvious that Toyota hid the defect in their vehicles from the public, did little or nothing to correct it immediately, in order to make more money.
Now... the auto workers want to show support!!
What's wrong with this picture :(

Nothing, seeing that the American auto companies have done likewise for years.

It would be a terrible thing if Bodine shut down for good here in Troy. They pay thousands upon thousands of dollars that go to our schools, town etc. Not to mention how many employee's would be layed off. I shudder to think about it. It is not about the co. in itself, it is about the people it employs. I do feel empathy for the people that were injured and even killed as a result of those flaws that were obscured from our view. Is that the fault of the workers, the people that work on the line everyday? No..If it was your job, your home, your family, you would feel different.
