    Yeah, because workers don’t deserve part of the pie, right Ramirez? CEO’s have overinflated their worth for far too long, at the expense of not only their employees, but of the consumer as well.

    Like all Republicans, Ramirez hates unions.

    Because why should workers be paid anywhere close to what they’re worth? That’s just commie thinking.

    The autoworker’s pay has held steady for almost 15 years. They pitched in when the auto companies needed them to back in 2008. Now it’s time for the auto companies to pay up. they’re doing well. Spread the wealth.

    The cumulative years of million+$ a month salaries takes away from the labor is asking an unfair wage argument.

    Watching the news, one would never know the UAW is still on strike. Picket lines in Michigan and Ohio in January ought to be interesting.

    Unions have long outlived their usefulness. Now all they do is destroy companies for short term gains.

    We should learn from history. If the UAW got a living wage, car manufurers would go out of business just like the cotton plantations did.

    Interests Rates are up and thus, so are auto loan rates. As are the default rates on the same. Who are the people buying, (or worse, leasing), vehicles now? Lock all of the union workers out now and it won’t take nearly as long as it already has to get the contract negotiations to a reasonable level.

    They’re demanding a 46% pay increase and a 20% reduction in their work week. What’s wrong with that?

    The union took pay cuts and gave concessions when the companies were losing money. Now that the companies are making record profits why should they not see a benefit to their labor?

    buy the way

    CEO of GM made 29 million dollars

    The President to GM made 14 million dollars

    When you found a company or invent something you get to decide the profit margin and take home pay.

    When you are the CEO you are simply managing a company that someone else built.

    If you look at executive compensation, the scale is even more wildly disproportionate. Don’t expect much of a peep about that from blokes like Ramirez, though.

    If ever settled, only Union workers will make enough $ to afford a Union made EV. We taxpayers will be subsidizing both the manufactures and the Union workers.

    Why should CEOs be earning compensation hundreds of times greater than the workers actually building the cars?

    What if they gave a strike and nobody came? It’s nothing a lockout won’t cure.

    Apparently unions do not / can not remember their role in the collapse and near demise of the American auto industry just a decade and a half ago. Or more succinctly: ‘those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.’

    My stepfather’s legal firm ( Zwerdling, Zwerdling, Keith and Livingston) used to represent the UAW, so I grew up as a pro-union brat. Still am.

    Stellantis is a group of French and Italian companies. Why WOULDN’T they simply move production to Mexico and China? It’s not like Joe Biden would protect USA workers by saying: “I’ll apply 25% tariffs on cars you make OUTSIDE of the USA.” [As President Trump WOULD.]

    I own a 1999 Chevy pickup. I’m 75. Truck’s got to last because I don’t have $60,000. That’s been the case for years. It’s why I still have that truck. If auto workers get the wage they deserve I have no problem with that. More power to them. If the products the car companies produce don’t sell, things will change, they do sell and the car companies are making profit, time to share.

    From Mike Peterson in today’s CSOTD:

    “Could be worse. I lived in South Bend right after Studebaker terminated their pensions and widows in their eighties were flipping burgers. I wish the people who yap about personal responsibility and bootstraps could have been there.”

    .

    Emphasis mine.

    Businesses almost always say something like that, but I’m having a hard time thinking of a company that was put out of business by its unions. (And unions commonly have a good point when they say that if a company is foundering, there’s something wrong with management.) In any case, “venture capitalists” put many, many more companies out of business than unions ever did.
