The Truth hurts
I am a "union" worker and I have a college education. Sadly, In the times we are living in, union workers are a minority in this country. With GM, Ford, M-Benz, laying off approx. 100,000 workers in the next five years, it only erodes the power of middle-class workers of this country. The UAW union fought long and hard to gain benefits and living wages for their workers. But now, the retirement costs and health benefits payouts are killing the Big 3 automakers. Most of the blame lies with Congress. Their position that the bottom line is the most important thing only furthur damages the future for our children and our retirement options. It is sad that we have the most expensive health care system in the world and yet 40 million people have no heatlh care insurance. If Congress does not recognize the danger we are in(middle-class) then we are doomed.
To all, have a happy and safe holidays
