Well how ironic I was going to blog about the Corvette plant and in todays headlines Ford is swinging the axe. This hot on the heels of GM swinging the axe a few months ago is a major blow to the UAW and thousands of workers who trusted their unions to take care of them.
I am sure it is shocking news to many but it should hardly be suprising. Now before you have too much sympathy for the UAW workers ponder this from a recent article about the Delphi Plant:
Skilled workers average $30.77 an hour
Production wages average $26.35 an hour
Now compare that to the national average for:
Police Officer $22.40
Fire Fighter $19.22
Now if you think a job building cars, trucks or dildos should pay better than the four jobs above, you are a complete and utter piece of shit.
