Virtually no one in private industry has pensions now.

Should they be the exception?

Most UAW workers make a decent wage. But they gave up a lot in the last decade's financial crisis and they haven't been made whole regarding that.

Do you think they should get all they want? The pay increase AND the 20% reduction in hours?

Speaking of the pay increase, it pisses me off that the press 1) doesn't always acknowledge it is over 4 years and 2) due to compounding, the annual increase is not 10% a year, but goes down each year. With a populace that is dumb enough to believe in Trump and to blame Dems more than Pubs for the impending shutdown, how many people understand that?

Right now things are going great for the automakers. We don't know how long they can keep that up. Nothing is forever.

I would like to see some kind of profit sharing where the blue collar guys get more profits when things are good--like the white collar guys--and share somewhat in the hardship of bad times--like the white collar guys don't seem to do.
