Hmm....here's my rant. Nothing gets my goat more then seeing high school drops outs and uneducated people working on auto assembly lines making rediculous amounts of money. They're only getting it because some UAW or CAW or whatever blackmailed the corporatoin into giving it to them.....and then they threaten to go on strike again the next year if they don't get even more money. So then the auto maker....(insert GM, Ford, Chrysler here) caves in to these bums and thenwhat do you know, the factory closes because it's not profitable. I find it funny that on one hand, America is proud of it's so called democracy and free enterprise....but when it comes to unions, they want a communist society. Corporations are not allowed to make money, they need to share it with the floor sweeper.
What I'm speaking of here is what happens in the Greater Toronto Area of Canada. We have automotive assembly plants all around us. Each year they threaten to close them.....each year the workers want more and more and more. I'm a fully qualified professional engineer yet I don't make the kind of money these dopes make on the line. That just isn't right. But I know this, when that plant closes and moves to Mexico...they only have themselves to blame. Oh, and good luck making that kind of money ever again. I doubt Jiffy Lube or Midas will pay you 75K for putting mufflers or wheels on cars.
Now, take Toyota and Honda....both have massive plants within 45mins of Toronto. Neither have unions....neither would ever let a union in their doors.....guess what? both companies are expanding production....building more plants in Ontario....know what else.....employees are paid well....but not over paid, but they are happy.
Don't get me started on couriers.....they are the next pieces of overpaid scum. A UPS driver in Canada makes more then a Paramedic.
Just telling you as it is.
