I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Like it or not the management had no spine during the negotiations.. pure and simple. Not even in Europe do we have such idiotic labour costs (relatively speaking) put on companies when compared to the rest of the society.
As for making a living wage... I guess we'll have to go through the pointless exercise of determining what each of us considers a living wage and then denying each others position... I'll save us all a lot of time and grief. I withdraw the "living wage" phrase and replace it with "a comparable wage". Feeling better?
I'll just let you bask in the stupidity of that statement.If you compare a Hummer and a Corolla, sure.
Fortunately not everyone in the country has your failing eyesight.Oh, it's been clear for a long time that you "see" exactly, and ONLY, what you want to see.
Which you think says what? That it's employment costs? I'm fine with that. So let's force Toyota to pay an equal wage and not subsidize their employee healthcare through their government... level the playing field, and you might see GM on top once more. But no, instead you want everyone to lower their wages to that of foreign companies... how very American of you.Yet, GM sells more cars than anyone BUT Toyota, and Toyota only surpassed them very recently by.
No, it doesn't. PeteEU keeps saying that GM is failing because they don't sell cars. But they do. More than anyone except Toyota, and even then, it's a difference of 7%.
So, it's not the number of cars they sell. If it were, then they wouldn't be in trouble.
It doesn't undermine my argument; it undermines your desperate attempts to suggest that they are working for far less because they might be dumb rednecks.
Carry on; your bumper sticker mentality is merely more evidence of the lack of any attempts on you or other Liberals to make the effort to have coherent and substantive arguments.
